What Diabetes CAN’T Do

It’s amazing how a simple inspiring adage can lift the spirit and refresh the soul in times of trouble. We all have moments when we need a little lift. This inspirational poem was adapted by Marie, a member of the Divabetic Club (on online community helping “divas living with diabetes” stay upbeat about their care), for just such a moment.


What Diabetes Can’t Do

Diabetes is so limited –
It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot destroy peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot suppress memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life
It cannot conquer the spirit.
