Poetry and Writings

AS WELL AS


WELSH MEANING

AS WELL AS

SNOW ON THE GROUND

OUTSIDE

AND SNOW FOG IN THE

HILLS

DRINKING MY WARM

TEA

LISTENING TO THE

TRAIN PASSING BY

DOWN BELOW

THINKING OF MANY

THINGS IN MY MIND

WHEN SUDDENLY

I SNEEZE MY HEAD OFF

AGAIN FOR THE TENTH

TIME IN THREE MONTHS

ITS LIKE I GET A COLD

IT GOES AWAY

THEN IN A WEEK IT

TRIES TO COME BACK

AGAIN AND ITS ALWAYS

A CONSTANT FIGHT

DRAINS MY ENERGY

YET SOMEHOW

I HAVE KEPT IT AT BAY

TO BE JUST A COLD

FOR THREE MONTHS

SNEEZE

ITS LIKE NO MATTER

HOW MUCH I TRY

TO BOOST MY IMMUNE

SYSTEM SOMETHING

STILL GETS PAST IT

AT FIRST I THOUGHT

ITS ALLERGIES

CAUSE IT KEEPS COMING

BACK

BUT IT DON’T ACT LIKE

IT

COLD MEDS HELP

WHERE THE ALLERGY MED

MAYBE ITS JUST NOT

WORKING ANYMORE

HECK IF I KNOW

I FEAR THE WORST

IS YET TO COME IS IT

JUST ME OR DOES IT

SEEM THAT VIRUSES

ARE STRONGER THAN

THEY SHOULD BE

I HAVE ALWAYS HAD

A WEIRD IMMUNE SYSTEM

WITH ITS UPS AND DOWNS

SINCE I WAS SIX MONTHS

OLD WITH GERMAN MEASLES

AND YET I LIVED

WITH MOST OF MY

HEARING IN TACT

YET I AM NO STRANGER

TO VIRUSES, FLU’S, OR

OTHER LITTLE NASTIES

MY WHOLE LIFE IS A STRUGGLE

TO OVER COME WHAT

THEY LEAVE BEHIND

LUCK HAS BEEN ON MY

SIDE NOW FOR A GOOD WHILE

CAUSE I ALWAYS

RECOVER FROM THEM

STRONGER THAN BEFORE THEM

BUT LATELY

ITS LIKE I GET SOMETHING

AT THE DROP OF A HAT

FIGHT IT FOR A WEEK OR TWO

THEN IT GOES AWAY TO COME

BACK TWO WEEKS LATER

UGH I GUESS ALL IS AS WELL AS IT IS

TO BE THOUGH IT JUST

DOESN’T MAKE ME FEEL

TOO GREAT… SO

ONCE AGAIN

OFF TO SLEEP TIL MORN

DO I GO… EARLIER

THAN I WOULD LIKE TO

IN HOPES

A GOOD NIGHTS REST

MY TEA AND COLD MEDS

KICK IT OUT MY SYSTEM

SIGH...
