Maybe Careful, not Carefree

Maybe this information

her diagnosis easier

our lives maybe careful,

not carefree totally


She will count the numbers

regulate so she is healthy

more aware of her choices perhaps

those we all make anyway


Mindful beyond her years

needing to know

living more consciously

purposely in her decisions


Following a different path

a wrinkle in the road

something she will grow into

in everywhere she goes
