“Misused Creativity” Poem of the Day (2023)

“Misused Creativity”

By Ashley O’Hare

Write a letter,

fold it into a paper airplane.

Sing a song

proudly on center stage.

Be as creative as you wish-

it changes nothing.

The content is the same.

The truth remains unchanged.

In an alternate universe,

my reaction may be different.

If my naivety remained intact,

I may have fallen for it

and pleased you with how I react.

Unfortunately

too much as happened in this life

for that dream to come true.
