Pregnant Teen

Updated on December 8, 2011

Just a Teenager Having a Baby

Too Young to have a baby !tut tut, the woman muttered

Who ever heard of a teenager having a baby!

Who Is the father?

How OLD are you again?

Tut! Tut ! she frowned,then spun around

Says here your mother died, and your living at home

Not good news is it, to have no-one around

Its a shocking thing y;know, teenagers having babies

You have no support ,your father is only a man, and he dont count!

Just wouldn't be right, definately must cross that out

Go home and think about what you should do

Options are limited ,youre just a teenager having a baby

Come back next week ,I will have some ideas for you

By then , I will know just what you should do!

Next week came ,the girl knew what she must do

Stand up to the world and not be afraid

For though the road would be tough

Filled with Prejudice and stuff

So looking at the woman eye to eye

She took a deep breathe and said

Im not too young to have this baby!

I dont need your permission or your judgement today

In fact I doubt you have anything good to give me today

That man ,my father who you crossed out

Found a good doctor ,not the kind you wanted me to think about!

He said to tell you 'Your'e Not God' and to be careful how you treat people

Your prejudice and biased heart why someday

God might just cross you out.

Song From Baby

      Thankyou and yes Id love to hear that song ,I like John Denver music. The baby that the poem was about turned out to be a beautiful kind and caring adult who just got married a couple of years ago.....I am proud of him simply for being here. There is also a photo of all of my sons in one of my hubs , https://hubpages.com/relationships/Long-Distance-R...

      Congratulations, you made the right decesion, and showed courage and bravery. If you would like to hear a great song about the desire of the unborn to live, listen to "I want to live" by John Denver. A very moving song.

      Thankyou for reading an sharing your thoughts re being a young parent . It is tough ,but you have highlighted that with the right attitude ,anythings possible! Yes even now when I look back and think yes I could have ..... and done this ...( whatever) no way would it have been superior to how I was rewarded in the end.

      I can totally relate. I got my girlfriend (now my wife) pregnant when I was 16 and she was 17. It wasn't easy. I'm 30 now and my baby girl is now a teenager!

      I started early. I now have four kids. What can I say. I'm happy with them. I love my kids.

      Being a teenage father gave my life direction. I was able to see things a little clearer than my contemporaries. While they were worrying about what's the current hairstyle, I was already thinking of how to make money to support my family.

      It was really tough. But I won't change I thing even if I can magically do that.

      Great hub!

      How cool you lived in NZ ,were you there long? I actually live in the States now and although NZ ranks 16th in the World per capita perhaps the figures were higher (70's,80's) as abortion was not available until only very recently and expensive ,therefore out of reach for the majority. I also grew up in a small conservative town ,good in many ways but unforgiving in others.

      MightyMom( luv that nic) Yes it worked out thanks to my dad, but I often felt sorry for other girls I met who didnt have that practical support,its very demeaning to be patronised or pitied and a misuse of authority I agree.

      I so respect your hubs ladies ,thanks for taking the time to read mine too.

      Lovely story of courage and standing up for yourself. People in those positions of power/influence should not be looking down their noses. They should have compassion and truly help the young girls make the right decision for THEM.

      My fave line: "Tut Tut she frowned, then spun around"

      Glad it worked out for you (I'm assuming it did). MM

      When I lived in NZ I was astounded at the amount of teenage pregnancies there. That young girl from Whale Rider, didn't she just have a baby at age 15?

      Kiwi, that is how I feel, if one person, if one time, that ray of hope gets through, then I thrilled..more for that person, than myself. I just want to make a difference, like you.

      I appreciate your words of encouragement ,sometimes its good for us to be reminded from time to time of what youth was like and for me ,if I could give back some of that strength {that eventually came) it hopefully shines some light into their 'dark lil corner' just like someone did for me.

      It's an amazing honor for me, to be allowed into the 'dark corners' of people's lives, your life. To get to see a small glimpse into your heart. There are a lot of young women in here that need this story, and older women who need to be reminded what it is to be young, and scared. Let's encourage this world together, eh?
