Your teeth are clenched,
your head down.
Your nails sink deeper and deeper
with every sound
Your pace is rather brisk, for
You feel numerous eyes staring
they penetrate through your skin
as they point and laugh at what you're carrying
Voices making their way through to your ears
discomfort, as you fight to hold back the tears
Thoughts rushing through your mind, beating at your brain
"Why God why me ? Why after all these years ?"
With no care for consequences,
you've been having unprotected sex
Now it is your junior year in high school and,
Life has caught up to you... at a time you least expect
You say a quick prayer, and feel a burst of acceptance
It's time you take you take responsibilty.
You no longer hold your head down, you raise it high
and smile through all the negativity
Though you may have made some bad choices,
having unprotected sex at such a young age
You dont deserve discrimination
You are human, and we all make mistakes
