LIKE TELLING YOUR PARENTS…!

LIKE TELLING YOUR PARENTS

Calling the “Doc.” ahead of time,

Showing it doesn’t feel fine…

Is  taking a risk

An adolescent might miss

If they thought voice volume might climb.

Addressing my foot’s slow healing,

Worried at what’s in revealing….

The actual truth,

Will I be in the soup

Losing work for my poorly dealing?

It’s healthy to face one’s fears,

Despite risking those prideful tears…

Only one way

To get through the fray,

Is to not allow one’s health to be in arrears!
