“Future Focus” Poem of the Day (2023)

“Future Focus”

By Ashley O’Hare

Knock your dreams out of the park.

Wish on shooting stars sparkling in the dark.

Continue climbing that tree

even when the bark makes your hands bleed.

Don’t let society

stop you from reaching what you need.

Only one person needs to believe

in your path.

You.

This pain won’t last.

The sun always shifts,

altering the shadows it casts.

Bring some extra batters

for flashlights on your journey.

A sudden storm

could swallow all the light around you.

Never lose the supplies required

to create your own.

Your future deserves

to see all of your hard work.
