My ode to diabetes

I wrote a poem to diabetes, it is not a love poem or one of hate.  Just the randomness about dealing with this disease every day, Enjoy!

Oh diabetes how you came in like a storm

My pancreas is not pumping insulin of any form

My blood sugar this morning was as high as can be

Now it is low and I am feeling shaky

I am getting used to eating lettuce for a snack

Although some days I really want a Big Mac

Tiny scabs on my fingers are tiny badges of honor

If I do not take you serious, I will be a goner

I miss Snickers and Orero cookies

I am rhyming by using Snookie…

I have made this promise to friends and family

This disease will not get the best of me

I do not like you and you do not like me

I hope for a cure one day we will see

You live in my body so just understand my rule

I will not be your victim or your fool

I hope you enjoyed this light hearted poem, really it is my way of telling diabetes to go kick rocks.
