The Bell Tolls (April 19, 2016)

Can feel
My heart racing
At 1000 km/h.

As I wait
To see
The newest members
Of my medical team.

Knowing
Bad news  waits
When I hand in
The required forms
For my food log.

Feeling like
A condemned prisoner
Who been served
The last dinner
Before the gallows.

Each second
The minute hand moves
Brings me
Ever closer
To my doom.

Three days time
My life is
Forever
Changed
By insulin shots.
