Forgive me, my child


I'm apologetic for what I've done to you

My angle 

You didn't deserve that penalty

You did nothing wicked, dishonest, or sinful

I should have been a woman

Even at that tinder age

I should have conducted my responsibilities

I was terrified, fearful, nervous, worried and abandoned

No one around, not my family, not yours

I did what I thought was appropriate

I know now I was mistaken and self-centered

That I'm the individual who should be penalized

By God, whom you're with

May he have clemency and understanding toward me

I was juvenile, foolish and knew no better

Forgive me, my child

Thank you very much. I wrote this about 2 or 3 years ago about my experience with this subject from when I was 15. Things like this are never easy but I believe we need to talk or in my case write about them so that other girls will know they're not alone.
