I Never Knew It Was This Hard

I wish you would have told me that having sex would be this hard

Yea, you showed me the basic steps, but never the affects

He was my first, my only

He made me feel so comfortable

By the time I was overly comfortable, it was over

Hmmp, what a bummer

He became distance….words became shorter…visits became nonexistent

But my love for him grew fonder

Weeks started to pass and he eventually stop calling and coming around

Eventually Mother Nature didn’t show up either

I’m panicking, I’m only 16

We used a condom, what the hell is going on

I’m calling him…..texting him…no answer

I finally got the courage to go see my doctor

She says three words that I didn’t want to hear

CONGRATULATIONS YOURE PREGNANT

Now, I’m 17 with no father for my baby girl, no job

I’m struggling, my parents disowned me

I have my baby girl living in a shelter

I’m afraid CPS is going to take her away from me

How come my teachers never told me this

MRS. JARVIS, HOW COME YOU NEVER TOLD ME THIS

I never knew having sex could be this hard.
