Her Story

She was once so young and innocent

Her life so vibrant

Love was fresh and pure

Never letting her down

 

The pain was not noticed,

Her innocence pushed away

Her friends encouraging

Her lover caring

 

Nothing seemed to go wrong

Her life felt complete

Her mother unaware

The truth came in a blast

 

Nature deemed her condition

Her man refused her admission

Sixteen years and she’s no longer a baby

Her tears flow unchecked

 

Her friends in the dark,

Her mother’s face is stark

The pain is seering

Her course unclear

 

How was she to act?

To accept this burden and this gift?

The child growing inside was denied.

 

I told her story and my heart is broken

My love for her is now spoken

I am confidant and the burden weighs deep

Her secret is mine to keep.
