    TIA’S THEME


    15 and pregnant
    Unsure of what my belly holds
    Lost about the future I hold

    I’m still a baby
    My baby’s daddy is a maybe in the neighborhood
    A statistic to society

    Pretty with no education
    My daddy is ashamed of me
    My mother agrees with every choice I make

    Not old enough to work
    Not rich enough to be on my own
    My dolls cry for me

    I’ve been looking for love since the age 3
    Biatches and hoes were my daddy’s nickname for me
    Mama slept through the arguments
    Swollen eyes for her disagreements

    But, I’m a mama now
    there’s no turning back
    I have a mouth to feed
    An *** to clean
    A role model for responsibility

    All I can do is pray
    Keep a roof over our heads
    And clothes on our backs
    Food to nourish the soul when it’s weak,
    And the strength to change from a naïve little girl
    Into a successful woman of motherhood
