Our Diabetes

By , Nantucket, MA
I am selfish,
And lazy

I don’t do the things I should
I don’t get better
And it can kill me

It will kill me
If I don’t help myself
But I won’t help myself
I won’t

I had a revelation

I won’t do this for me
I will do this for the kid
Who can’t eat cupcakes
And birthday cake
And ice cream because
It could kill him



I will do this for the kid who
Cries at the mere sight of a needle
(I don’t blame him)

I will do this for the kid
Who will never get better
In his entire life
I can get better but,
I won’t get better

So I won’t do this for me
I will do this for you
Thank you for giving me hope
Thank you for letting me live
