Aa Harvey

Man flu

Man flu



So exhausted; wide awake.

Every bone in my body aches.

Do not wake up late,

Or stay up late.

You have to work,

So do not be late.

No time for a date,

That hill needs climbing.

Do not forget the silver lining that needs finding.



What good is good if you are selfish?

You don’t have the option to give it a miss.

You cannot risk this golden chance.

Get up and stop sitting on your hands.

Build the plan.

Give thanks.

Be a man.

        I do try to be true to what I know and I guess I was feeling pretty ill at the time of writing.

        Peace, love and empathy.
