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