One Little Word

Just one little word
Replays through my mind
It engulfs me
Baby baby baby
I hear it all around
They point and stare
Their mouths agape
Baby baby baby
How did this happen?
Is this really my life?
Overwhelmed with embarrassment, shame, anger
Baby baby baby
What will become of me?
What will become of my child?
Fear washes over me
I suddenly can’t breathe
Baby baby baby
So many responsibilities
I am not ready for yet
I feel shaky and weak
I am so young, so fragile, and so helpless
Baby baby baby
My life is changed forever
Easier days have now come and gone
I am now an outcast
Haunted each day by that one word
