The prompt for today is to write a haiku about one’s condition.  I made up a fictitious conversation between an older and wise diabetic to a young and frustrated one.  (I don’t know why but I made them kind of country)

 

Diabetes ain’t

a good reason to despair

just continue on…

 

 

You dunno what it’s

like, here in Wilford’s shadow

‘betes has me worn

 

 

I’m gonna tell you this:

I know you can handle it

and live really grand

 

What do I do huh?

I feel like I’m being beat

I don’t want this thing

 

 

You must accept it

that is the key, then you work-

work, consistently.

 

 

Sadly folks, Friday’s prompt is to write another poem…lol
