A Poem for D-Blog Week

NATURALLY SWEET
"You’re so sweet…"
Little did they know I just pulled a BGL of
one eight zero
and sweet was more than…
A compliment.
Walking the tight rope between highs and lows
Managing a personal hospital:
blood-work, counseling, medical equipment, evaluations, humiliations, protocols, close calls, scares and prayers…
Daily.
On the outside, holding it all together.
When inside it feels like you are about to shatter.
Knowing that giving up or feeling like you just…want…to take…
a break…
Is NOT an option.
Because…
There IS no break when you are Naturally Sweet.
