Ballad of A Teenage Parent

July 1, 2009
More by this author
Little Lynette would go out and play
In the sun or rain,
With such innocence and no care.

She would run and jump all across the lawn;

Getting dirt all over herself, and making her mother upset.

Until one day she grew up from those childish games.

She went to school,

Even though she thought it was lame.

The years went by and Little Lynette grew up.
She fell in love,
and soon enough a baby girl was born.

She now realized what her parents went through.
How hard it was to raise her.

I love the whole storytelling thing.  I really love it so much I can't say anything about it.

This was different, bold. It really struck something in me. I think the way it didn't ryhme really helped the almost harshness of the last line.
