Teen PKU Perspective Poem

November 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

Lately I've been inspired to write poetry. So I decided to write a poem on PKU. It's a little sappy but I really liked it! :) PKU By Emily Linafelter, age: 17 I have no idea why I was made this way. But its how I get by Day by day. No one really gets how I feel, When I sit down, And have a different meal. All I do is put a smile on my face. You'd do it too, If you were in my place. I have to remind myself everyday, That there's a reason why God made me this way. The reasons know I may not know, I know that one day, they will show. Until then I can choose to be mad. But, that wouldnt be good, It'd be very bad. Instead I know I'll be ok. No need to be sad, That's what I always say! :)

    The beauty of this poem Emily is that anyone with PKU can relate to it, but only you could have written it. I appriciate your positive spirit dont loose it. Its amazing what a difference a positive spirit can make. I can personally really struggle with being positive at times and it has hurt me probably just as much as it has others. Just keep being you.

    Great stuff. This is why I’m glad I recently joined this site. It’s nice to connect with people who really understand… Other PKU patients. My wife has Celiac, so I’m sure this will mean a lot to her as well.
