    Walking the streets all alone,
    A young teenage girl has to be grown,

    She has no one else except her baby,
    No longer a girl she has to be a lady,

    She has slow down, and take it steady,
    She has to face life but she ain’t ready,

    Her child hungry and crying, causing the mother stress,
    The mum has no time for herself, she’s practically a mess,

    Looking after her child is now her responsibility,
    But she hides her face in the street to hide her humility,

    She loved the baby’s father, she thought they’d be together,
    She woke to reality, and found out this will be never,

    The father turned and left, he was scared and so he ran,
    But he’s not ready for fatherhood, he not ready to be a man

    He just a young boy, and he is full of fear,
    Seeing the mother cry, he turns a blind eye to her tears,

    Just like the baby, the mother needs to loved,
    She also wants nurturing, kisses and hugs

    But no one is around and no one really cares,
    No one to love her baby is the only one there,

    Screaming little baby, all it does is cry,
    The mother just wants to lay down and die,

    Baby and mother go to sleep, all troubles fade away,
    Next comes and the have to face the world another day,

    No longer a teen reckless and wild,
    She just another teenage mother, a child with a child.

    THIS IS A DEEP EXAMPLE OF REALITY AND I PRAY THAT SOMEONE FACING THIS ISSUE CAN GROW FROM THIS AS I AM. DEEP MOTIVATION AND AWARENESS KEEP IT FLOWIN

    [ LOOK TO THOSE WHO BRING YOU JOY AND YOU'LL FIND YOUR PALACE OF PLEASURE]

    This Is So True

    This makes me think about myself because I am a teen. It also helps me keep my belief of why I am choosing to try to wait until marriage to have sex. This is a beautiful piece. Keep up the good work.

    This is all too common today...
    Strong dose of reality composed here
    with the move to educate, hopefully
    we will see a decline in this tragedy
    in years to come...

    Cycle of the tribe invisible, noone sees or hears them, let alone thinks about them,

    but with conscious minds like yours out there speaking 4 them, they'll be heard.

    Very nice piece.
