“On The Sidelines” New Poem of the Day (2023)

“On The Sidelines”

By Ashley O’Hare

Don’t leave the ball in my court.

I’m meant for the sidelines;

for moral support.

You know my aim is awful-

I’ll miss every shot I make.

My confidence wobbles

under your glance.

Can’t you take the lead?

Take one for the team.

You always were

stronger than me.

This pressure is more than you can see-

take it off my shoulders, please.

You can take all the time you need.

I’m rooting for you to succeed.
