Headache Poetry: Oh What A Day

In the fall of 2006 the NHF’s Headache Education and Support Group facilitators invited their attendees to submit headache-related poetry. Because interest in this project grew, it was opened up to all who visit the NHF’s web site, as well as those who read NHF HeadLines.

The NHF received a variety of headache-related submissions. We have selected poems, limericks and verse that are relatable to those who suffer with this disease.

We extend our sincere thanks to all who submitted their work.

Today I have a headache –
Is it because I ate that extra piece of cake?
Maybe it was the jumping up and down,
Or the night I had on the town?

Today I have a headache –
It is pounding its way in like a stake.
It feels like a drill is in my head.
I need to rest
I will go to my bed.

Today is a new day and the sun is aglow,
The headache is gone, no more lying low.
I can do what I want; I know it’s a sign.

My headache is gone and wow, I feel fine!
No headache, no pain, I won’t go insane!
I will eat extra cake and jump up and down
I will even go back and tear up the town.

Oh, what a day to play.
