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
   to life,
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.

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.

This is a very good poem, and I hope that more people may read it and learn from it!

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.
