Treasure Island

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 Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
