    Maturity

    When I was 16
    I met a guy, 23
    It went str8 to my head
    Cause I was mature you see
    Nothing no one said
    Could make me leave him alone
    Determined to prove I could deal
    And handle my own
    Although I was young
    I was very head strong
    Thought the decisions I made
    Could never be wrong
    So here I was “Maturity”
    Amazin him with mental stability
    My parents wasn’t havin it
    They said he was just too old
    I thought they were just old fashioned
    And their hearts were just cold
    I had to make a choice
    So I decided to act
    Since my folks was trippin
    I went behind their backs

    STOP!
    See, this was the first mistake, not listening to wisdom
    My folks use to always say, they been down the roads I was trying to cross
    They were trying to keep me from making the same mistakes,but I didn’t listen
    I am learning a lesson that I will continue to learn for the rest of my life.....smh
    PLAY!

    Started sneaking off from home
    Trying to be with this man
    He knew things I didn’t know,
    On life he had the upper hand
    But you know me
    Miss Maturity
    thought I knew how to deal
    But I didn’t you see
    Soon time 2gether got heated
    A lot of touchin and kissin
    Tryin to be Mature
    My child hood I was missin
    Trying to be grown
    And you know what came next
    All that touchin and kissin
    Soon led to sex

    One day I got sick at school
    In my mind I already knew
    I was only 16
    Carrying a child......was this a dream???
    I made my choice
    I wanted to keep my child
    Went to school everyday
    Good grades the whole while
    Graduated on time
    A bundle of responsibility
    Handling things on my own
    Now living Maturity
    As for the dad
    Thought he was every bit of cool
    But when reality set in
    Found he was a grown Fool
    To all my young sisters
    Don’t rush life
    Take your time
    Enjoy being young
    So be young and shine
