My Disease by MwsR
It hurts to have you in my life
Each reminder pricks me like a knife.
I struggle to keep you at “bay”
But you just won’t go away.
Walking seems to clear my head
While you try to keep me in bed.
Food I take in
Keeps me, prisoner, again.
Wishing you weren’t here
Want to take away the worrisome fear.
Like an old friend that I have talked to
You remind me of what I should do.
To say my life would be different without you
Is exactly the truth.
You came into my life when health wasn’t important to me
Taught me a lot, you see.
Diabetes, you aren’t my friend
You will however be with me till the end.
So I think I’ll try to be
The one I can be with this disease.
Don’t let fear rule or dictate your life.
Live it with all you’ve been given, even amid the strife.
After all, you came first before the Diabetes,
You don’t need to make a peace treaty.
Fight to live!
Take the time to give it!
Share your knowledge and experience,
With those who search for a difference.
