TITLE: Nineteen as a Mother

July 1977 teenager of the time, living as an adult, freedom of a child, yet a mother. I wish I had my baby doll instead of a son, I wish my mother would have comforted me as the little girl full of fear, instead of drinking and having so much fun. Confusion was in the home for no apparent reason. My soul had been possessed by the enemy's spirits and the flesh is weaker than ever before. The fun was never ending, straying from the path of righteousness without knowledge, wisdom, and understanding to protect me. God was not watching, He did not know what I was doing. He has shown me every one of those days again. I am still nineteen and a mother, as I am still six with the holy spirit. My mother lived her life as she was the only one who could. I must live mine now as I should.

This seems to be a cry for help. But, also, an encouragement for other teens to beware.

This is interesting, very poetic. I became a mother at 19 oddly enough I wasn't scared like alot of teen mothers are I think that my stupidity had glazed over my vision that much! I eventually came back to God and he sent me my husband who is a much better man then the man I was trying to force my 'happily ever after' on. It's all about patience and learning. Wisdom as you so eloquently illustrated.

Very blunt. Gave me much to think about.

Very powerful. The pain is almost palpable. My heart goes out to someone walking this lonely path. But God will indeed keep you. Keep the faith and stay strong.

An interesting take on what often happens to young teen-age girls. I like the brevity of this piece -- no unneeded words. To the point.
