Diabetes, by Danny Kemp.

My legs won’t walk, my lungs can’t breathe.

Soon I’ll be crawling along on my knees.

My head is swimming, my eyes are weak.

I have no wish to try to speak.


My mouth is dry, my tongue is on fire.

I want to sleep. I have no other desire.

I wake ever hour with a need to pee,

But I must drink gallons of water. What’s happening to me?


I’m dizzy through lack of sleep,

I almost fall over, I’m now that weak.

My brain has slowed to a minute pace.

Thoughts of mine no longer can I trace.


Diabetes is an illness,

That’s debilitating and cruel.

It creeps up on you,

When you least expect it to!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
