diabetes haiku

a friend of mine is a big fan of the haiku. she often writes them about nature, but when she saw kristen's guest post, she was inspired and sent me a few.

Diabetes SUCKS,
but it will never stop her!
Life to its FULLEST!

Diabetes SUCKS.
Yes, but it's not an excuse.
Meredith proves that!

so of course, i wrote one (hey, i'm no poet.):

insulin, needles.
blood sugar meter, oh yeah.
they keep us alive. 

a haiku is a traditional form of japanese poetry. haiku poems consist of 3 lines. the first and last lines have five syllables and the middle line has seven syllables. the lines rarely rhyme.
i am first with five
then seven in the middle
five again to end. 
what's your diabetes haiku? post it in the comments! :)
