13 Years

If 13 years could calm your fears
Where will I end up
In 13 years this disease is severe
I stare into my coffee cup

I am grateful for my 13 years
Others don’t complete them
Life goes on as 13 veers
Death beats its own drum

These 13 years if you don’t adhere
They will say you’re noncompliant
These 13 years have robbed my peers
Diabetes is a giant

Through 13 years complications appear
No matter how hard you try
With 13 years diabetes will jeer
When you think you have gotten by

I am thankful for these 13 years
For a cure I will continue to fight
Because after 13 years I am still here
And tomorrow brings new light
