HAWMC# Yet Another Poem about Diabetes


Today’s prompt is to write a poem that is about 5-15 lines and where each line is a question. 


What is my diabetes affecting today?

Is it causing this itch on my arm?

Is it a cause for alarm?

Should I call the doctor?

Or is paranoia a factor?

Maybe I should relax?

Do I seem stressed to the max?

Where is my meter, my brain?

Have I lost them again?

Will you help me find them?

Or better yet, will you join me in a quest?

To advocate for some of the best?

Do you know about people with diabetes?

Did you know they’re all over your cities?

Help us in finding a cure?

We’ll help you right back for sure!

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
