Sugar in my blood
leaked into my urine
inflaming my joints
starting a war attacking
my body at a cellular level.
Sugar messes with hormones
numbing peripheral parts
and turns nerve pathways
into painful neuropathy.
Extremities could become
useless, needing removed.
My eyes might lose the ability
to see. Can I arrest it - repair
the damaging effects so
when I am old I will
still be me? Reading.
Walking. Peddling. Paddling.
Creating. Cooking. Loving.

Dearest beloved body of mine -
why are you resisting
insulin? Repair thyself I 
beg of thee. Holy indwelling
worthy be.
