A poem about the problems that young mothers face when they don't think about the consequences of unplanned pregnancy.

I know that accidents happen
so maybe if I close my eyes
and wait and see what
happens I can pretend
it didn't happen.
I know it wasn't entirely
my fault but I didn't stop it.
Why do I feel this way?
I can't go back in time and stop
myself from letting this happen.
Why didn't I stop to think?
I'm usually such a smart girl
but this time I wasn't.
I didn't stop to wait, I
broke my promise to myself,
so now I'll close my eyes.
Promises broken I might as well
leave and start over
somewhere else.
A teenage mother with no job skills
has a child to raise.
The father ran off and nobody will help
I'm all alone.
I could pretend for so long
and now I'm gone hoping for some
luck barely making ends meet.
I'll close my eyes.
I'll wait and see.
I'll pretend
it didn't happen.
