I know smart people,

Who don’t support


Because the vaccine their child,

Their neighbor’s child,

Or a kid in the neighborhood

Was followed by the flu,

Or acting finicky,

Shortly after the vaccinations.

Can you say, coincidence?

Because, correlation,


And, the ability to avoid measles, mumps, tetanus, rubella,

And so many other diseases,

Are worth avoiding

With a simple poke.

But my words may mean little,


I head to my doctor,

And get myself vaccinated.

In the hope that my actions speak loudly

Enough that everyone can hear the truth.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
