Seventeen years old and no where to go
a baby on the way, but my thoughts were "no!"
I tossed and turned, it's time to decide,
this problem I'm having, in time will not hide;
After thinking realistically, the answer was no,
so off to the clinic I go.
I first see the counselor who pretends to get me calm,
but all she wants is funds in her palm!
She told me my money wasn't enough for the job,
she's a money hungry slob.
And so she continues, there are other options:
Have you thought about keeping the baby?
I was so stunned I think I said maybe.
A few minutes later I came to my senses and told this "professional":
"If I don't have the money for the surgery itself,
How can I support a baby and myself?
I got up that morning with doubts through my head,
Our silence was understanding, nothing could be said.
On the way to the clinic we were both sad
in dreaming of what we could have had.
The reason I continued was my youthful age
and life's next responsible page.
I got on the table and felt I was wrong,
but it was too late, I had to be strong.
It's years too late God,
please forgive my horrible sin.
For me to be childless feels like an awful fate.
PLEASE BLESSED MOTHER: TO YOU I PRAY,
ASK GOD FOR A FETUS AND IN MY WOMB IT WILL STAY.
