Symptoms

I won’t be leaving my bed today,

My body has given me the signals,

A fever, 

A runny nose,

A pounding headache.

I can’t quite tell if it’s the flu

Or burnout.

What I do know,

Is that these symptoms,

In the language of the body,

Relay a simple message:

Rest,

Recuperate,

Tend to me.
