This happened to a friend of mine and I wrote this for her I hope you like it.
My Mother Said
Once my mother said love is a beautiful thing,
So I fell in love.
Once my mother said that hate is an ugly thing,
So I stoped hating.
Once my mother said that friends were a neccesity
So I got more friends.
Then I turned 15.
Then my mother said that love was fantastic but to
So I fell futher in love then I should, I didn't
Now my daughter is 7 and I am 22 and she listens to
every word I say.
Now I hope she remembers what my mother said.

California! Yeah! Okay, I'm done now
Having a child that early in age is a bit frightening. We realize and learn from our mistakes and try to keep others from doing the same. Nice poem. Your friend is to be congratulated on it.
"Sometimes stars can only be seen in darkness."
"Sorrow's crown of sorrow is remembering happier things."

This is a very good poem, and I hope that more people may read it and learn from it!
"To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world"

I thought I hardly listened to my parents
growing up but I guess I did
about more than I thought
because I turned out alright
and now pray my 3 daughters
are listening to me
but I know if they don't
listen to me now maybe
they will hear me later
at the times it really matters.
But then other than saying
I like what you wrote
and your friend is very lucky.
I probably shouldn't say so much
because I am twice a teenager
and not female.
