“Possibilities” Poem of the Day (2023)


By Ashley O’Hare

I try to expect the unexpected,

but there are too many possibilities.

My imagination

is not strong enough to consider

the countless variables.

My heart

is too fragile to face

the chance of darkness.

Overthinking every moment

is exhausting.

Living in the present

is impossible

when you are guessing

what may happen

in three days time.

It’s too much.

It’s all too much.
