The Girl With Celiac Disease

Once upon a time I was just a little girl


Not having a care in the world of what I ate


Breads, pastas, and much more


I didn't realize how much I adored


 


As I came about with shaking and feeling ill


I didn't realize what I ate could kill


I didn't doubt that something inside me


Was not allowed to be a part of me


 


Here I am today


Still struggling with the disease


You may think that its not all that bad


But what does the silent killer seem to be?


 


Today I'm wondering if people could take more notice


There are girls like me out there who need more focus


So take breath, count to ten, celiac will be over 


Changing the world this way 


Help us Celiacs be gluten free Everyday
