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.
Why?
I'll close my eyes.
I'll wait and see.
I'll pretend
it didn't happen.
