Die in bits and pieces –A poem on Diabetes

Dr. Sagar Borker

Assistant Professor PSM PGIMER and Dr RML hospital Medical College New Delhi 110001 India



Doctors screamed, relatives fired, Wife, sons, daughters satired,

Sedentary, obese, overfed, lazy, selfish, they connoted

Pastries, desserts, cookies, chocolates, ice creams; I admired...


A well-wisher friend, i dint care to follow

Who everyday emptied his throat into my ears

I still smoked like a chimney, slept like an armadillo

Declined the pharmacy and always preferred cheers...


What big deal is food availability?

Burgers, Pizzas, noodles, found in every nook and corner of town                       

I never doubted that things could go so worse

Refined carbs, transfats: i am truly a clown.....


From thence on my fingers are pierced everyday

Every single prick takes my life away

Now I am dying in bits and pieces

Disease! oh dear; is with me to stay…..


Eyes, kidney, heart, foot, stomach

All organs seem to dance at its tune

Cosy sweets I cherished throughout

Seems like a poison, on gulping them I fume…..


Insulin injections have crucified me mentally

Tablets seem to never end my excruciating agony

From outside I try to be hale and hearty

Within anguish seems very scary and nasty……


Terrible disease has turned my life

From a joy ride to roller coaster

The disease has ruled me till today

Diet and exercise is my new stress buster …..


From now on I have no full stop in my thesaurus

I am ready to talk walk about diabetes aloud

I will not surrender to it anyway

Until my body and soul is covered with a shroud…..
