~ A Young Mothers Love ~

In a hospital bed lies a young girl,

She’s alone and she’s crying aloud.

The pain of contractions won’t let her sleep-

And the father was far less than proud.

He begged her at first, to have an abortion-

Something that she wouldn’t do.

He called her a whore, said it wasn’t his;

The child from a love he called “true.”

Mom stopped visiting a few months ago,

She said that it made her embarrassed.

If only she saw what was happening now-

As the nurses remove the girls dress.

She pushes and screams for over six hours,

She grows tired as moments do pass;

But finally she pushes and hears a soft cry-

Her first son has been born at last.

A fifteen year old mother, a newborn child-

The options, this young mother knows.

She kisses the child atop his soft head-

And then off with a nurse the child goes.

In a hospital bed lies a young girl,

She’s alone as she silently cries-

She gave up her baby, to give him a chance,

But inside, a piece of her dies.

Author's Notes:
I would like to take this time to remind everyone of the safe-haven law.  You can hand over any newborn to a public employee in uniform (police, firefighter, nurse, paramedic), free and clear- no questions asked- no judgements made.
Love, Rin

You have written a piece that pulls on the strings of the heart. This is a situation that occurs much too often, babies having babies. Sadly, most times the ending is not  a happy one. Your advice of the safe haven law is very good. I like the way you write, you have a very talented way.   Henry

This is heartwrenching dear...

How mistakes cappen so easily and are sometimes irreversible.
Decision we make set us up for the rest of our lives...but at fifteen these decisions are mountains to climb.  Sad to see a little one facing an almost impossible task.

I think it is valiant if one can rise above oneself and have the wisdom to know that our children are not our own, but their own, and Gods.

I think we are ALL to blame when we find an infant in a garbage bin....dead.

Wonderfully provocative write Rin, that will heighten awareness and help others make the right decisions~

I cannot begin to imagine the pain of giving up a child, It takes courage to raise a child so young, but it takes even more to give your child up because it would lead to a chance you know you are unable to provide.

This makes me feel so thankful for all the support I had.

Im favoriting this Rin, you have a way of presenting these issues in such a raw, true way.

A heart breaking write and I can't begin to imagine what giving a child away must feel like, great writing though so very sad.
