This is basically how I feel about my Type 1 Diabetes! Oh and no, I CAN eat sugar. That's a misconception. I got it from....well, unknown causes, actually!

When I look in the mirror, who do I see?
I see a girl; a girl who's me.
I also see the suffering eyes.
The broken heart.
The pale skin and the fragile bones.
I see me.
Even though I seem like a trooper, some days I just have to cry.
I sometimes feel like I have to lie.
They ask what it is, and I say 'nothing.'
Oh but wait, that 'nothing' is 'something.'
I just won't admit it, I fear that they won't understand.
As I stand, I look at everyone walking.
I just watch them talking.
Sometimes I want to be stalking.
Stalking their shadow, their every move.
Am I trying to live their happiness?
Am I trying to feel for once....happy?
I love my life and I feel so sappy.
I feel like a character.
I feel mature.
I know that this has grown on me.
The shots, the media, the misunderstanding and the pain.
More than ten finger pricks a day.
Am I alone?
No.
Sometimes I just need to work a little bit slow.
Sometimes my blood sugar just gets too low.
Sometimes my blood sugar just gets too high.
Wait a minute, just look into my eyes.
Hear me cry, hear me scream, hear me roar, but watch me soar.
I'll be in the spotlight someday; I want to prove them wrong.
Prove them wrong; all of the people who make me unhappy, the people who judge me for what is on the outside, rather than on the inside.
I have Type 1 Diabetes, and I will shine.
Just wait, and the fame will be mine.
