Treasure Island

Rosemarie Venero

(9/18/1970 / Bronx, NY)

I Turned Fifteen...

My birthday was yesterday
But for me, it was just another day
No birthday party, no cards, no cake
Nobody to say 'Happy Birthday Girl'

I just turned fifteen
And my life is such a mess
I made a mistake
And now I am expecting
A baby girl

Mon, Dad, I am so sorry
I never meant to let you down
I made a mistake, I promise, I will change
Please, don't make me have
This baby by Myself

Dad don't lock the doors
Please, don't kick me out
I know I am an embarassment
But I am only just a child

I just turned fifteen
I am having a child
But how can that be
I am only just a child

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
