In sickness

It was a heavy day at work today, and not a very good day for that. In between work commitments, I put my hands on my knees and tried to catch my breath. My legs burned, my back ached, and there was a pain in my chest.

I came home and my legs burned, my back ached, and there was a pain in my chest. I put my hands on my knees and tried to catch my breath.
