Have you ever put your feelings about diabetes down in a poetic form? It's a great way to get your feelings out and express the thoughts and emotions of diabetes in an artistic form. If not, now is the time to do it! Write a poem, rhyme, ballad, haiku, or any other form of poetry about diabetes in honor of D-Blog Week 2014. We can't wait to hear what you have to say!

I have wrote a couple of poems but not about diabetes. My daughter wrote a really cute one about diabetes called 'Down the Rabbit Hole'. It is about being diabetic and along the idea of Alice in Wonderland. I don't have a copy of it but I will try and see if she still has one she can send to me.

Life Injection
DBlogWeek, day two. The topic is poetry. Here is my contribution.

Broken though unbreakable
Held back though unstoppable
Glass surface over undertow
The needle-free will never know
Micro self-inflicted wounds
Bleeding out through multiples
Survival limited with rules
Injecting life with Banting’s tools
All day long and through the night
Fear and burden, fragile fight
Autoimmune failure’s path
This useless, cureless, aftermath
