In my chair I sit

Struggling through another coughing fit

My body feels hot

And smells as if it is about to rot

My hands are shaking

I bet people regret saying I am faking

My throat burns

And my stomach churns

Just yesterday I felt like I was flying

Now I feel like I am dying

I force myself to go lie on my bed

I can feel the sweat dripping off my head

The loud ringing of the phone

Causes me to let out a painful moan

Because of my reignited headache

My mom brought me medicine for me to take

I roll over and close my eyes form the setting sun

Being sick is never fun
