“A Choice” Poem of the Day (2023)

“A Choice”

By Ashley O’Hare

Underneath the rising sun,

frolicking through the flowers

where the squirrels and bunnies run,

it is easy to forget darkness.

Nighttime seems a world away.

So much can happen

throughout the day-

no two unravel the same.

This can be a terrifying truth

if you allow a restless mind

to capture negativity like glue.

Fortunately there is an alternative.

We can all choose

to bask in the temporary sunlight

until the time comes to snooze

and prepare for the next cycle.

Are unpredictable events ahead?

or is unreliable science at work?
Choose to follow the thread

that does not fill you with dread.
