Diabetes, it’s time to choose a new name!

Diabetes, what is your name?
What do you really like to be called?
Do you really like being called D-I-A-B-E-T-E-S?
It has the word ‘die’ in it after all.
What would you be called
If you could choose any name at all?
Please tell me it would be more life-giving?
I’m sorry, I can’t take it anymore.
Please kindly consider a name that works for both of us.
This is something you will gladly do?
Well, great!
We don’t have to argue for once!
After all, we often do!

 

Peace & Light,

Cynthia
