Diabetes Blog Week 2013 Day 6: Diabetes Art

This is the day 5 post for Diabetes Blog week from me! You can get more information here.

This year Diabetes Art moves up from the Wildcard choices as we all channel our creativity with art in the broadest sense. Do some “traditional” art like drawing, painting, collage or any other craft you enjoy. Or look to the literary arts and perhaps write a d-poem or share and discuss a favorite quote. Groove to some musical arts by sharing a song that inspires you diabetes-wise, reworking some song lyrics with a d-twist, or even writing your own song. Don’t forget dramatic arts too, perhaps you can create a diabetes reality show or play. These are just a starting point today – there are no right or wrong ways to get creative!
I had made this point to a friend when my diaversary came around this year, and I guess it's kinda inspired this.

Part of You Had to Die

In order to be who you are today
Part of you had to die
But not just a simple part in the way
A part that will never let sleeping dogs lie

And that is not all that is gone
All the different possibly yous have vanished
And to the darkness with no dawn
To the different universes, banished

We may cry for what will never be
And mourn the loss of what has been
And wonder what we'll never see
And linger on what can't be again

Because part of you had to die
So all of you could learn to fly
