My mother may not know, but my teacher does

No one to talk to,

Nowhere to go.

Mommy is overly religious.

Daddy will never forgive me.

Help me.

Please help!

I don't need shame.

I need advice.

I need a hug.

I need empathy.

I need an adult’s perspective.

I need an unbiased opinion.

The person I see 5 days a week, 8 hours a day,

More than I see my parents.

I need you, Mrs. Tillman.

I’m pregnant!
