“Intended Identity” Poem of the Day (2023)

“Intended Identity”

By Ashley O’Hare

Is there a guide

on who I am meant to be?

Was I born to tell stories?

Am I supposed to be saving lives?

Does this key

help me sort out the lies?
If I am not the person

I was meant to be,

do I still have time

to change who I am inside?

If I am not doing enough,

can I be forgiven?

My head is spinning.

My heart is twisting;

contorting me

into who I am meant to be

from the inside-out.


before it is too late:
Who am I assigned to be?

What is my intended identity?
