I Am

In English class on Monday, we had to write a poem about i am, i wonder, etc. and our thoughts that follow. Well, these are my thoughts, just thought i would share this!  Let me know what you think!


I am a diabetic in the sophomore class
I wonder if I will succumb to the facts
I hear a voice saying be strong this to will pass
I see doctors work to keep research on track
I want to be normal how long will this last

I am a diabetic in the sophomore class
I pretend sometimes to be free from my disease
I feel the loneliness down deep in my soul
I touch the fingers I persecute with ease
I worry that some day I’ll be out of control
I cry for everyone who’s ever been harassed

I am a diabetic in the sophomore class
I understand the urgency to find the cure
I say to the disheartened there’s always next year
I dream of the day I won’t have to endure
I try to remember a life without fear
I hope the researchers will find the cure at last
I am a diabetic in the sophomore class.
