“Explanations” Poem of the Day (2023)


By Ashley O’Hare

I’ll explain everything eventually-

why I continued fighting,

how I kept loving,

when I discovered how to detect honesty.

One day,

you will know all I learned.

I can’t tell you now–

it’s premature.

The story is incomplete;

there is more I must endure.

It would be useless

to detail pain

until hope

shows its face.

You will know everything

the moment I do.
