“The Illusion of Control” Poem of the Day (2023)

“The Illusion of Control”

By Ashley O’Hare

It was all for control-

calories in, calories out.

This was the easiest way-

the only way I knew how.

It was all under control-

every bite logged.

I kept track of every workout-

every crunch, every joy.

It fell out of control-

my world became black and white.

I was making progress

with no end in sight.
