Teenage Pregnancy Poems - Poems Of Empowerment For Pregnant Teens

Many people judge teen parents thinking they are irresponsible, and too young to raise a child. Teen mothers especially are faced with many emotional struggles. How will they finish school? What will their parents say? Should they hide it? Should they abort? What if their baby has no father? Trapped in a sea of these doubts and others, many pregnant teens aren't sure what to do. Some people might tell pregnant teens, "Your life is over when you have that baby". Teens should remember though, having a child doesn't end your life, it simply gives you a new and different future.

    It happened at the age of sixteen.
    She was scared to look up at that screen.

    She would soon get kicked out to the street.
