It's Okay To Be Sick


By Bud Lemire 


It's okay to be sick
Not everything will click
When you're not at your best
Then it's good that you rest

What people need to know
No matter where you go
“Get Better Soon” is not to be
Getting through each day is the key

They need to know, you need to tell
When you are sick, you may never be well
Some days are better, some days are worse
“Get Better Soon” is not in your universe

You deal with the pain, every day
You tolerate, whatever people say
“You look like hell” is not something to be said
“What are you doing up, you should be in bed”

You still have a life to live, even when you are sick
Your candle is still burning, there's a flame on your wick
Getting better is an option, without a choice
Understanding is the key, support is your voice

                     Author Note:

We need to take time to understand from the sick person's
point of view. Instead of judging them so quickly. Because
as in any situation, we don't know the whole story. We can't
be so quick to judge them, just by one quick glance. If you
are concerned, ask them. For they are the ones who know the
full story on themselves. Your guess may be totally off.
