Ingrown Toenails


Ingrown toenails,
holy crap they're painful!

Ever since I was a baby
I've had to put up with them!

It's like six needles,
all at once,
going into my toe,
and it's so hard
to make it stop!

The treatments I've done
are not permanent,
and they just return
to the way they were, before!

My mother and I
went to a pediatrist
and he didn't help at all!

All he did
was poke around my toe
like a cross-country shoe spike
cutting into the ground!

Ingrown toenails,
aren't a laughing matter,
they can get so bad
that you can barely walk!

Your toe can swell up,
as pink as a kitten's nose!
Once its all swollen,
you are not getting
off very easily!

If you don't treat you toenail,
it can get so bad,
that you might need
to have surgery for it!

Treatments for your toes,
aren't very succesful,
but I'll layout
some treatments that I know!

I know that you can
use the nail-filer
from a nail-clipper,
and "scoop" the nail out.

You can go to a
and let him poke around.

You can soak your feet
in a bucket, or sink, full
of water and salt.

These are only a few treatments,
so I hope that,
if you have this,
you can also get some help!

I love how you can write a

I love how you can write a poem about pretty much anything. From stingrays to poop (or lack thereof) to a single flower to tie dying to classes to ingrown toenails. It takes a special kind of person to find words in everything :) Great job so far, keep up the good work!

This life is the "once upon a time" kind of fairy tale that will sold to the masses 2000 years after it ends
