“The Bare Minimum” New Poem of the Day (2023)

“The Bare Minimum”

By Ashley O’Hare

It’s not enough

to do the bare minimum.

If every individual

followed only the paved paths,

we would have no adventures;

no new discoveries.

Take your time.
Climb a tree

and enjoy a shift in perspective.

Find a pond

and swim in a moment of peace.

Live your life.

Don’t waste your time

only surviving.
