No Judgment

Teen pregnancy
Such a condemning cluster of words
They suggest the end of dreams, the mistake of a young woman, and sometimes unending hurt
People may stare, people may talk
But life is a miracle no matter the situation
Instead of judging those who have created life
Support them, become their rock
Sex is an act that comes with consequences, some lifelong
So use protection or just avoid it overall
And if a pregnancy occurs at a troubling time
Remember that a baby is not a death sentence
Love will prevail, judgement will fall
