Today, Poetry Day


Poetry Week

The image says it all
needles piercing the skin wall
from fingertips to big fat thighs
is what I’m thinking through my retinopathied eyes

What makes this condition so unique?

is it the chronicness of needle dependence?
The fear of injections and the hype of stigma?
Or the stats of death associated?


is this not a condition conditioned by greed?

The food industry says do not underfeed
Doctors say pay me cash, but don’t overfeed
Diabetes is exactly what the cash creators need…


We need to stand strong

Play real life survivor without technology
and show the world
how natural nature was intended to be


The human species has evolved into parasitic survival

by causing dependency leading to vulnerability,
Diabetes makes you weak they think
Nope, uniqueness unified makes us strong!


Share the joy
