Type 1 Diabetes
You are mean, cruel and completely terrifying.
You wait in the back ground, sneaking around, just lying.
You are relentless. You are constant. You are cunning.
Once you reside within, you keep us all running.
You take and take and take some more, all from others which isn’t yours.
You instill fear, darkness and give us shutters down to the core.
You don’t judge, prank or worry; frankly you are simply irritating.
You hold us prisoner, keep us intimidated and can be quite incapacitating.
Victims are countless: life, childhood, finances, marriages and friends.
Changing life forever, on days it seems as though you will never ever end.
You damage and cheat; breaking all the rules we once knew.
Our nemesis, pain, fear, and hate instilled all because of you.
A simple vacation is now a thing of the past.
Our carefree world we once knew…well, it didn’t last.
No matter what you give us, no matter what may be…
We won’t give up or give in until she is free.
