“Self Image” Poem of the Day (2023)

“Self Image”

By Ashley O’Hare

Never judge your younger self-

they didn’t know what you know now.

Lessons don’t cease when you graduate;

we learn each and every day.

Overanalyzing your past mistakes

won’t magically make them go away.

You were not created to be perfect-

the people around you were not saints.

Turn around and face the present-

the old you deserves some grace.

Pick up your glasses and gaze into the future-

you could be sitting with the greats.

You’ll never reach your full potential

if you look in the mirror full of hate.
