I'm going to have a baby
a baby that's all my own
I will help to shape it's life
and raise it 'til I'm grown
I'm going to be a mommy
to some little girl or boy
In only 9 month's time
i'll deliver a bundle of joy
I'll get to feed and clothe it,
give it all my love and care
and if it should ever need me
I'll always be right there
Lot's of teens are having babies,
it's not like I'm the first
but I've got this funny feeling
that my situation is the worst
'Cause God I HATE this baby
Even before it's born
I already look upon it
with bitter hate and scorn
I really don't want this baby,
this child I haven't had
for I was a victom of rape
and it's father is also MY dad

I do not know what to say, I pray this is not true, but somehow it sounds as though it is. This is just to sad, I am speechless, sorry.

I also hope this isn't written from true experience. Please e-mail me, I'd like to talk and not for public view

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

This is not based on personal experience at all... no need to worry. Just a poem about a bit of bitter truth that exists out there SOMEWHERE, though thankfully it's not me.

The last few lines drained the blood from my face. And it is a tragedy that it describes someone's life, somewhere.

It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Emmy, as like the rest I sure am relieved to know this is not based on personal experience.....a very moving piece on such a tragic reality....

May your days be filled with lots of sunshine and your nights lit up by golden moonbeams
