Vaccines

Vaccines

This is a poem I wrote about the importance of Vaccines for children. I am not a good writer but I am very proud of this.

 

Do you remember when I got sick?
When I nearly died and I was barely new?
Do you remember how my parent’s cried?
How my sisters tear stained face worried for my life aged 5?
Do you think i got sick because my parents didn’t love me?
We both know that’s untrue
Do you remember when I got sick?
Lala in one hand and a cast on the other
Needles and wires covering my small body
Tiny baby me fighting for my life
Do you remember what made me better?
Not my mother’s love or my father’s hugs.
Science fixed me up
Do you remember when I got sick?
The fear of loosing me the weight on my parents shoulders
Do you want that weight yourself?
True love means doing everything you can
Do you remember when I got sick?
If you can stop that for her why wouldn’t you?
Do you remember when I got sick?
What’s the harm in doing everything you can to stop her being the one lying motionless with ten towering bodies poking and prodding your baby with needles and wires.
If you dont give her everything you can will you one day regret it?
Do you remember when I got sick?
Do you really want that for her?
