A prick…a pain
A reminder in a pill bottle that has my name.
Injecting while my body fights
Makes for some restless nights.
Testing has its own issues
Sometimes pain ensues.
Results can be saddening
And A1C ‘s are often maddening.
Repetitive actions everyday
Keeping those high blood sugars away.
Eating right sure is a task
I think I’d like to eat wearing a mask.
Life for a Diabetic has no glam or lights
Just work and lots of inner fights
For those that share this disease
The difficult one, Diabetes.
Keep fighting and going no matter what!
We all are in the same pot.
We can choose to continue or just to give in.
There’s no absolutes until the end.
