Last week I started a brand new series called, A poem for Tuesday. Well, it’s Tuesday — so here’s another poem for you!
A note about my poems…
I think we all know how much our feelings can shift from day to day with diabetes and even moment to moment. I hope you will keep this in mind when reading my poems. I work hard to be my positive, best self every day with this sometimes very demanding disease.
Thanks for reading. I appreciate your support of my newest expression.
Cheek to Cheek
Diabetes, do you think I like you?
Well, I don’t
There, how does that feel?
A nice little kick in the face
like you so often do to me
Well don’t think I’m not keeping score
Because guess what?
But, the unfortunate thing is,
It feels like you are winning
(some of the time…)
And, I’m not a happy loser
So I will not give up!
It’s you and me ’til the end
Cheek to cheek
Fist to fist.
