Dog Days Entry – EPP meaning no sunshine for me! (Erythropoietic protoporphyria)

Posted: July 8, 2010 in Competition entries, Short stories

Glorious summer sunshine, perfect tanning heat

Most would see this a magical, seasonal treat

But Sarah is allergic to invisible sunshine rays

It can severely blister her skin for days

Exposure to the light, leaves her scared

Staying inside during water fights, must be very hard

No picnics by the river or holidays on the beach

The rays will effect, wherever it can reach

Damage to her digestion is also common,

It could effect her nervous system, leaving her solomn.

Avoiding the sun for her entire life comes at a price,

No fun in the sun with friends, just isn’t nice.
