TEEN PREGNANCY: Mistakes

    "Sometimes you regret the things you do"

    Yeah, that's what some girls say, they tell me,

    "that's what happens when you make that one dreadful mistake,

    you want to turn back but it's way too late."

    They say it could happen to anyone, "Oh no not me"

    But it did, that's why she's got to make a choice,

    to keep or get rid.

    She can choose, maybe door one or door two,

    let die or let live, but either way she has to get through,

    something's got to give.

    A choice she'll make looking down memory lane,

    taking a look back through the hour glass at her past,

    and what caused this mistake.

    She said "I loved him, he said he loved me too."

    But I know that's what they say to get in your head.

    "He asked me how much? So I showed him my bed."

    So that's why a crib's in the corner of the room.

    I asked her "How old were you?"

    She explained "I'm 16 now, that was nine months ago."

    Cradling an infant in her arms

    she looked nothing more than 12 years old.

    The mistake she'd made could not account for all the pain she felt

    before and after her babies long awaited birth.

    "I love this child and always will,

    even though his father doesn't love me still.

    I made the mistake when I laid with him."

    One final question I had to cut loose

    "Is that a mistake, that there in your arms?"

    She said "No, God put him here to keep me warm,

    he's a part of me and helps me to go on.

    He's no mistake this child of mine,

    his birth a memory I'll keep in mind.

    No, not a mistake, after nine months I carried him,

    I couldn't let him go, couldn't give him away.

    He'll always be, in my heart he'll stay."

    Cradling an infant in her arms, she looked now no more then 12 years old, nine months was long hard labor, she had suffered true.

    A child at 16 a mistake I never knew,

    but she'll make other mistakes and

    this one she must get through.

    "His father Yes, but him No way,

    I've made bigger mistakes and this one worth it,

    no delay."

    I would say that you should have made a hub out of it, instead of posting it in the forum. hmm

    However, Welcome to HubPages.

    I would say that since she posted it in the forum, that probably indicates that she would like us to "talk" with her about it.

        Give it some time. Keep reading; keep posting and comment on other peoples' hubs. It can be a slow process, but success does grow.
        Welcome!

    This is a very nice and thought provocative poem, must be saved as a hub so that other people can read it. Thanks for the great work.
