Levels high I wonder why,
Eaten good only fruit today,
Guess with stress caused by another,
I知 caught again right in the middle,
Tell him to breath there痴 always another,
Tell him to inject his insulin it痴 time,

With pills to take one after the other,
Not forgetting the shots twice a day,
Surgery needed to replace his Right knee,
Surgery needed for a spur in the Right wrist,
Seems as if I知 falling apart,
Only on the Right so I guess I知 half left.

Still life travels on and this I applaud,
I have much to give if only a little,
I succeeded in school with a passing degree,2008
Now I知 a Bachelor you see,
Only took six years to walk on a stage,
Only took 20 seconds to walk across that stage.

Now I am ready to look for a job,
To accompany others in helping some others,
But for now I知 taking time out,
Just to read all of you and a very good book
