Migraine Dethroned

Teri Robert @trobert Health Guide
  • You have terrorized me since childhood.
    Kept me from school, kept me from play, kept me from work.
    Left me cowering in my closet, seeking dark and quiet.


    You've ruled not benignly, but cruelly.
    Holding me a prisoner in your kingdom's dungeon.
    A prisoner mistreated, tortured, and abused.


    For too many years, your advisors - my doctors - demurred.
    Told me to bear it, to simply suffer at your hands.
    They were blind to your character and cruelty, useless jesters.


    At last, one of your knights exposed you.
    Telling me who you really are, he weakened your hold on me.
    He gave me the weapons to dethrone you.

    You will undoubtedly attempt to creep back in, Migraine.
    But you are not welcome, and you will not succeed.
    My knight keeps guard, arms me, and all is well.
