“Harsh Reality” Poem of the Day (2023)

“Harsh Reality”

By Ashley O’Hare

My heart is too fragile

for what I wish to accomplish.

This attention

is far from what I wanted.

Turn around-

there is nothing to see now.

Leave me be-

I need time to gather

my guts together.

I wasn’t prepared

for what I had to share.

Every person I previously encountered

saw my feelings as something to spare.

Silly me-

I put my faith in humanity.

Don’t worry-

it won’t happen again.
