“Resolutions” Poem of the Day (2023)

“Resolutions”

By Ashley O’Hare

I have a New Years resolution for you:

find a hobby.

Stalking is not a skill to add to your resume.

Plotting revenge does nothing to further your life.

Vigilantes only succeed

in fictional comic book worlds

where authors can carefully disguise

their petty strife

as bravery behind their strikes.

Find something that takes your anger

and transforms it into something useful.

Volunteer your time-

your energy is better used

for the good of the community.

The world is wide open;

as far as the eye can see.

All I ask

is you finally

leave

me

be.
