“A Fool’s Errand” Poem of the Day (2023)

“A Fool’s Errand”

By Ashley O’Hare

Summoning your greatest desires

will only extinguish your fire.

To predict what your future requires

is a fool’s errand.

Do not delude yourself

with a God complex.

Our minds are not equipped

to understand the years to come.

We are not omnipotent-

that is not our job.

All that can be done

is to live each day

with pure intentions.

Do no harm-

fear no karma.
