Today’s November Poem a Day prompt is “Window.” In recognition of World Diabetes Day, here his one is in honor of my hero.
Peak through a window Into the life of my hero, Who, since the age of seven, Has had a cellular thirst, Who has stuck her fingers So many times That her fingertips can bleed With just a squeeze. Peak through this window. What do you see? I’ll tell you, she Is one on whom the smile Has remained In spite of it all To this very day. © Randall Edwards 2021
