Teenage Pregnancy - Poem by Josephine DixonBanks

You gave her a baby doll
Before she could walk
You made her a mother
Before she could talk

Motherhood, the game you taught her
Now, she’s got her very own daughter
Experts can’t figure out why
Teenage pregnancy is sky high

You gave her a baby doll
Before she could walk
You made her a mother
Before she could talk
