Sweet Sixteen, Welcome To Motherhood - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

The little boys of the hood
Introduced her to Motherhood
Is that good?

Sweet Sixteen, Sweet Sixteen
Welcome to Motherhood

Put on the tape and press rewind
Can you see what was on their minds?
Their quick fun release
Became your infectious disease

Sweet Sixteen, Sweet Sixteen
Welcome to Motherhood

Now is about money and food
Keeping warm with firewood
A young mother in a daughter
She’s got no more time to be rude

The little boys of the hood
Introduced her to Motherhood
If only she understood
They still go to school
She doesn’t!
Who's the fool?
