Walking Around

She walked around with her head held down.

The risk of being near people,

Gave her fear

That she would be judged.


She put her hand up

To her stomach.

She felt a kick at her belly.

She smiled at the thought

Of bringing life into the world.


Being so young

People gave her glares.


She realized that

She can't let strangers dictate her life.

So she lifted her head

And walked around with it held high.
