I'm Not So Sure

So much to deal with,
Not enough time to get it all out.
It shouldn't be so hard.
All you have to do is talk
Tell someone...Anyone.
What good will that do?
None.
You can't change what has already happened.
You can't change what you have already done.
Just tell them
They have to understand.
Don't they?
I know...
I think...
I guess...
I'm not so sure.

Not a whore.
Not me.
That's what Dad would say,
I know that at least.
Not a whore,
My favorite person would say.
I know that for sure.
Not like her...
Still too young...
But not like her.
Hypocritical...
I feel I am.
Still, not like her.
I should understand.
Do I?
I know...
I think...
I guess...
I'm not so sure.

this is a very personal piece for me because my little sister and i were in the same situation not long ago. She is 17 and i am 18 and we both got pregnant. There is a follow up to this piece called No More. Read it to get the full story.
