This poem is about healthy body, healthy life style, healthy saving and living longer.


What is Diabetes?
It is when the pancreas get lazy
or stop working, causing,
Sugar in the blood,
Sugar in the urine,
Acquired thirst
Sugar in the body.

This is when the health problems begin
You feel unwell,
Your body begins to rebel,
of changes in its function.

The body cries out for help!,
Medical help is a must
Healthy diet, no sugar
Take your tablets,
Take your insulin,
Check your eyes
Check your blood sugar,
Help the body to feel healthy.
More exercise.

A new lifestyle begins!
Your diabetes team,
You must trust,
For support and guidance
without a fuss.

Why smoke?
Peer pressure
Mum smokes,
Dad smokes,
Everyone is doing it
Must be cook.

Choose not to start
Choose to quit,
Remove temptations
Use patches,
Attend a smoking clinic
Try other therapy,

Damaged heart
Damaged lungs,
Lung cancer,
Harmed unborn babies
I can go on.

Healthy saving
Healthy lungs,
Healthy heart
Healthy body,
Healthy life
Live longer.

Your poem about smoking struck a chord with me. I detest smoking. All smokers should read your poem.
