"The Dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins, but in the heart of its strength lies weakness: One lone candle is enough to hold it back.
Love is more than a candle.
Love can ignite the stars." -Matthew Stover


My wrist cramps;
chest aches;
throbbing head;
blistered feet;
weary eyes;
frizzy hair;
Homework piled up on me.

Acne flared up;
got a cold-sore;
fever-blister;
And there's more.

Pulled a muscle;
nervous as ever;
heart keeps pounding;
Running a temperature.

Nausea comes;
my side hurts;
my back's much worse;
Shoulders even more.

No, I cannot seem to go to school.
Haven't you heard, I've got the flu.
No, Mom, that test isn't today.....
But that essay........Well, maybe.
Please let me stay before I cry.
I don't wanna go, and
Now you know why.


The author's comments:
This is about one of those times when you're bogged down on homework and can't complete it all. So, then, you ask your mom if you can just be "sick" for a day. Just FYI, you're not alone. It happens. Sometimes we just need a break from the stress before we collapse. --And that's O.K.
