As a teen they believe Life
Is hard, most haven’t experienced what it’s like
To take care of themselves, let alone others.
Don’t realize what it takes to love.
Most girls are distracted by boys.
Few end up with kids
Of their own. Others choose to end
The little life. Boys can pick the easy way out
They have other things to care about.
Uneducated about birth control
Unwilling to ask awkward question
The child has to live with the outcome of ignorance.
Ready to parent?
Does that question make you willing to ask for a condom,
Even if it’s uncomfortable?
Or pick the alternative and drop $400 on a cradle.
The little life could be a blessing,
Or make you realize life Is messy
