The Diabetes Beasties!
Age Group: Adult
The Diabetes Beasties!
Oh, say, do you know, of that horrible
It lurks in your body, it lives as it
The Diabetes Beastie, a loathsome
Creature, it takes all, and many ..
It’s not above being sinister!
It feeds on the “heavies” and
Even the lites! It thinks it
Quite funny, “oh, joy,
It takes all the fun, out of
Eating at all, , ..the beastie
Will get you, and get you ‘with
You start to have cravings, and
Bothersome too, they don’t get better,
They just worsen, it’s true!
You feel like you’re sick, and
You cannot get well,
You go to the doctors, and
They say “well, well, well!”
“What have we here or didn’t you
know, you have a beastie, a beastie
We’ll have to treat you, and treat
You with care, you have an illness,
That’s very hard to bear!”
Diabetes, is a beastie, that can
Make or break your life, but, if
You learn to deal, you can change
The way you thrive!
You diet will change, and you’ll
Have to move, do a little dancin’
Get into the groove!
This beastie cannot kill you, unless
You don’t take care,
This beastie is a sly one,
Please watch it, and beware!
Don’t let this beastie win
This new life change!
Start thinking good thoughts, and
Begin to rearrange!
Starting with a diet, and a
New type of regime,
You can kick this beastie, out
In no time, it will seem, ….
That you have beaten the odds,
And lived to tell your tales,
You have won this game,
And the beasties have all

I thought of diabetes as sort of a monster...because it does destroy people...and this is a disease that you MUST be careful all of the rest of your life with! You can never let your guard down...but, it isn't to say that you cannot have some fun or enjoy your life, and or eat some yummies !!!!
Just that you MUST watch the portion control and never let the "beastie" control you!!!!! (or it WILL WIN!!!)
I dedicate this to Diabetics everywhere, and then some...even people who have similar illnesses, brightblessings upon you!
