“The Great Plan” Poem of the Day (2023)

“The Great Plan”

By Ashley O’Hare

Spending every day inside

was never part of the great plan.

To travel the world

was a top priority

until lurking dangers showed their faces.

If the knife came from my best friend,

why would I risk a stranger’s presence?

If evil can creep deep within,

why wouldn’t I barricade myself in?

This isn’t the life I dreamed about,

but it is what I am stuck with now.

One day I will return to the drawing board

and prepare myself for the public’s court.

Until then, I’ll lie in bed

trying to catch some sleep again-

fighting the lingering monsters in my head.
