    To her naive mind
    She thought love
    Was sex
    She held in her cries
    When he lustfully slid into her
    Pulling him to
    Her breasts
    As her soft hands firmly
    Gripped his
    Neck
    The sounds of her rapid heartbeat
    Sent him into an
    Unknown zone
    He lost all control to her melody,
    Her pleading moans
    The sensation was
    Unbearable
    He plunged in deeper and
    More forceful
    The pain reached her soul
    And she screamed
    No
    A violent hand went across
    Her face
    He turned into a raging
    Animal
    At the sight of her blood
    Running from
    Her nose
    She softly wept
    As he released himself
    Inside of her
    He gently kissed her tears away
    and said
    Good-bye to her

    To her naive mind
    She didn’t know, he was really
    Denying her


    Oblivious to Gods blessings
    She viewed this life inside her
    As another burden crushing here
    Feeble dreams
    She was searching for love but
    Confused it with lust
    To immature to see through his schemes
    She instead
    Wallowed in his excuses
    Clung tight to his every lie
    Longed to spend forever while
    He was thinking of ways to say goodbye
    Visions of the 3 of them together made
    Her smile but the truth makes her cry
    How could she at 13 raise a baby?
    What for this child could she provide?
    These days loneliness consumes her body
    And thoughts of death evade her mind
    She sat shivering alone in a warm room for hrs
    Wanting to confess but to ashamed
    To let anyone know of her ways
    She bathed in insecurity and dried with dirty men
    Wanted to quickly to grow up
    But wasn’t ready for real life to begin


    she cried as she tried to
    explain to him that in a mere
    9 months he'd
    be a father...
    he pushed her away
    from his big plans, no time
    for being bothered..
    his nails were too clean
    for changing
    dirty diapers...
    a snake she was to him
    a poisonous threat to his
    promising stardom...
    a clear path he walked
    no time for a new road to suddenly
    block him...
    he searched for a detour
    and he found it
    in denial...
    a vision came across his face
    and he saw a haunting man
    ~like father
    like son...~
    he slowly realized he was followin a familiar pattern
    and his sure pace became an
    terrifying run...


    She seeped through the cracks of
    A broken household
    Was naturally heavy set but someone
    Still should have know
    Her face grew wider, breast and belly
    Had noticeably grown
    Her family viewed this as puberty….
    Came from family of big woman
    And the apple never falls to far from the tree
    ….but o how true that turned out to be….
    See mama bore her first child at only 15
    And it seems as if these sorts of things are imbedded
    Within our culture right beside homicide and dope fiends
    Month after month pass by and tashas contractions grew
    quicker and she could no longer hold in the screams


    a lifeless body laid
    stone cold...
    on a roach infested
    bathroom floor...
    blood everywhere, a lil baby fights desperately
    for life, still attached to death
    from an umbilical cord...
    and as her lil cries
    grew louder...
    the room
    grew colder...
    and the stinch
    grew stronger...
    lil baby girl stared death
    in it's eyes
    and death was
    her mother...
    mama was only 13

    her tears became dry
    from the soft wind
    that blew
    across her
    face..

    Look what you did to Triniti. But this is a deep reality of times you would hope didn't still exist today. Now they give the eighteen year olds this RG382.. or what ever the name they call this abortion pill. Even this exit has caused recent trauma.

    " a clear path he walked

    So he believes...

    no time for a new road to suddenly
    block him...
    he searched for a detour
    and he found it
    in denial... "

    So easy to claim, but doesn't change the name of the father.
