Even a Teen ~ By Carly LeBlanc This is a word that all people fear And its not something anyone wants to hear But when it's the only word that can be used You look at the Doctor and say 'You must be confused' You don't have to smoke do drugs or be obscene Because this disease can affect even a teen When the Doctor told me the God awful truth I couldn't believe I wasn't a healthy young youth My heart stopped beating, I found it hard to breathe I couldn't believe this could happen to me You don't have to smoke, do drugs or be obscene Because this disease can affect even a teen I could feel the tears swell in my eyes But I pulled myself together and held my head high I went to the hospital later that night Preparing for the battle that I had to fight You don't have to smoke do drugs or be obscene Because this disease can affect even a teen I don't plan to lose to something this bad So it's going to leave just like a fad. This word won't win, even if it tries Cause I have it in the bag, and that's no lie.
