My mother always told me
"You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find Prince Charming."

I took her advice,
being the good daughter that I am.

I smothered my lips in Sugar Cookie lip balm,
and made my way around town.

My lips landed on too many young men,
and too many lips landed on mine.

All this advice got me was a broken heart,
and a case of mononucleosis.

The author's comments:
Just a funny poem I made to make my illness a little more cheerful and humorous.

Thanks for the advice, Mom. Next time I won't take it so seriously.
