    thrown into the grown up world all too late
    never worried about having a full plate
    or lights that worked or a dial tone
    my two parents have always lived in the same home
    and now i'm out on my grown-up own
    worried i won't be able to provide
    all that my little one needs to survive
    not the same worries as can i afford to get high
    now i worry how out of 2400 hundred and change
    i can pay all these new bills and still afford the Range
    somethings are gonna have to be rearranged
    no more free rides and long weekends on my card
    for the first time things are about to be financially hard
    and i don't want my child to be emotionally scarred
    worrying about how mommy's gonna make it
    and if day late daddys check will be legit
    i know i opened my legs and therefore opened the situation i brought
    i guess the ramifications were never a thought
    until the day the doctor said we were to have a son
    and now my whole life seems to have come undone
    should have thought further ahead
    before i layed down in my bed
    now throughout this new life i must tread.

    We are treading deep water
    Searching for land
    Salt water in our wide nostrils
    With only pen and paper to help us understand

    This flow runs as deep as still waters

    There's always a bright side to everything... :)
    you brought forth JOY...you pushed out LOVE...
    let his heart ...beat with yours...once you experience that ...
    doubts of anything will always be secondary to the LIFE that carries the same rythme as yours.
    I have read some of your work, you're a very strong and Intelligent goddess...continue to reach for the :star: :star: :star: :star: 's

    thanks fam for always standing behind me and my words. I am oversjo about having a son, but is it understandable to grieve for a life lost, especially mine, which I had just come to discover?
