“The Weight of Choice” Poem of the Day (2023)

“The Weight of Choice”

By Ashley O’Hare

One decision

can alter the course of your life.

Yes or no?

Right or left?

Now or later?

Heart or soul?

Right or wrong?

Stay or go?

Alternate realities exist

of a version of yourself

who simply decided

to choose red over blue.

Mundane questions

force you to make decisions

that inevitably lead

to the peak of your story.

Close your eyes and imagine

you allowed yourself to cry in public

rather than wipe the tears away.

Would you look in the mirror the same?
