The pains of teenage pregnancy


Lost in emotions
You made  love with him
Trying Not To Give Into your sanity
You wanted him to live inside You
Pleasures beyond everything in life
After minutes it was over

Days, weeks ,months passed
You ignore little signs
That you were about To Nurture another Human at a young age which was against Your culture
It dawned on you!
You were pregnant!
Feeling helpless,
Trying to jump into the ocean and probably die
But you have to stay on the boat of life for your child
Days and Days passed by
You got accustomed to the pain already
Different Cravings
Anger issues
Emotional traumas
But you had to stay strong

As beautiful ,Young and slender
You’ve Got to take care of a Being so tender
Gone Through The Pains meant For Older women
Screaming and wishing Your soul left Your Body
your Thighs tearing Into Two and You feeling helpless
Muttering curses to the man who made u pass through this
Holding unto the last string of life you could find
The only  word of encouragements were “Push”
You asked Yourself push what?
A mistake?
Push what you initially Regret
Push What was a result of what you were lost in

And there comes a sound
Not yours
Not the doctors
But a Human who was made of your own blood
Seeing that floods your heart with Joy
Tears of absolute joy!
Running down your cheeks like waterfalls
Holding unto your child
You knew this was the best feeling a woman would ever have
Listening to your baby cry
You vowed on that Day that this child would be your absolute priority over any man
You would protect this child with all your life
For this human you’d strife
For this human You’d die
For this human You’d Cry
For this human you’d go through where the bravest men dare not pass
You’d protect it the same way bees protect their honey
You’d protect it the same way shepherds protect their sheeps
Even the devil would bring no evil upon your child

Teenage mother’s  surely made a mistake
But to me every mistake? Has a blessing attached to it
