“Fast-Forward” Poem of the Day (2023)


By Ashley O’Hare

Life is speeding by

like I’m pressing fast-forward.

I can’t enjoy a single moment;

I need to pull over.

This is not how

it was meant to go down.

There was a thorough plan

for every stage I grew older.

How do I move on now

without proper training and order?

I just need a break.

I just need to catch my breath-

maybe change it up; meditate

downtown by the lake.

I’ll try anything

to help my mind cope

with the rising stakes;

with my past mistakes.
