Dear Distraught Pal with Diabetes,
Pestering people becoming your pet peeve?
Can’t pinpoint how to verbally phrase pain?
Take charge of life, thoughts, feelings—write.
Write when/why they’re a dark dagger in your side.
Perform prose before mirror.
Don’t mix words. Prepare for battle —I shouldn’t eat what?
Well, from the looks of it, neither should you.
Confront nemeses when they make comment.
After thoughts minutes, hours, days late fail.
Think like a comedic: snappy, on target.
Then take care of you, do the things you need to do to keep well.
Holding thoughts in will make you sicker than that no-no you devoured.
