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.

7 Teenage Pregnancy Poems - Poems Of Empowerment For Pregnant Teens

  1. 1. All Alone For Now

    • By Rebekah S
    • Published by Family Friend Poems July 2011 with permission of the Author.

    I knew a girl at my school who was pregnant and scared, so I thought by writing a poem for her it would make her feel better, and it did. She now has it printed and hanging up.

    in Pregnancy Poems

    It happened at the age of sixteen.
    She was scared to look up at that screen.
    Knowing there was a little heartbeat,
    She would soon get kicked out to the street.
    So she kneeled down to pray,
    How could I make this go away?
    The thought then came in her mind,
    But she knew she could not cross that line.
    She was scared and all alone
    And knew she could not go home.
    Life began to get too rough,
    But she knew she had to be tough.
    Just when she thought everyone had gone,
    It happened at the light of dawn.
    When she woke up in that room,
    She then started to bloom.
    Seeing the sight of her little girl,
    With her red hair and that one tiny curl.
    She knew her life was now complete,
    Hearing her daughter's healthy heartbeat.

  2. 2. The Fate Of A Single Mother

    This poem is for everyone who knows that everything happens for a reason. And for everyone who has a child and knows that the love for your child compares to nothing (even if the child wasn't planned or it wasn't under the best of circumstances).

    in Growing Up Poems by Teens

    A silly girl
    Loved a stupid boy
    He was her everything
    She was just his toy
    He played with her emotions
    Put mixed feelings in her head
    For that stupid boy
    A million tears that girl had shed
    His friends would laugh
    In his fun they would share
    They knew he was a player
    While she thought they were the perfect pair
    Then came that horror
    She was two weeks late
    So she took the test
    Could this possibly be fate?
    She told that boy
    The news she had found out
    That was when she discovered
    What he was all about
    He showed his true colors
    And crushed her pride
    Left her all alone
    For someone he had on the side
    Born to her
    Was a perfect son
    This war she was fighting
    The new mother had won
    The prize was hers
    To keep for a lifetime
    A baby boy
    Born to shine

  4. 3. It All Started With A Hook Up

    • By Mikaela
    • Published by Family Friend Poems March 2012 with permission of the Author.

    I'm 15 years old a freshman in high school. In April I should be having a baby girl with my ex-boyfriend after me and him hooked up over the summer. But 5 1/2 months in I miscarried. And this poem is to my daughter.

    in Death Poems by Teens

    It started with a hook up.
    And than the plus sign appeared. 
    Your daddy told me to take care of it.
    I did as he told.
    I went to get you aborted but I couldn't.
    I left crying into my best friends arms.
    You were still inside of me.
    I knew what I was going to do.
    I was going to raise you on my own.
    He asked me if I did it.
    I said yes and left it at that.
    3 months later my parents still didn't know.
    I went for a check up.
    And I saw you.
    I couldn't believe you were mine.
    I was so happy that I finally made a good decision.
    5 months now and people were starting rumors.
    I just told them I was gaining weight.
    They believed me and dropped the topic.
    Another check up came by.
    The doctor said you were a healthy baby girl.
    I knew I had to tell my parents soon.
    I wasn't going to be able to hide it anymore.
    It was 5 ½ months now.
    I was at a friend's house and I passed out bleeding.
    I was rushed to the doctors.
    They came in and told me it was normal.
    It was normal for teenagers to loose babies.
    I told them it couldn't be true.
    I told them to run the test again.
    And they told me there is nothing they can do.
    I sat there and cried.
    My parents don't know.
    And nether does your daddy.
    Very few people do and they all miss you just as much as I do.
    You would have been born in a month and a half.
    I miss you so much.
    There is not a day I don't go by with out thinking of you.
    I wish you were in my arms and not in heaven.
    Maybe if I just told the truth.
    Was I being punished?
    But why did you take the punishment?
    I miss you my baby girl.
    But don't worry we will meet again.
    And until than just remember I love you.

  5. 4. She's Too Young

    • By Lynn M. Anthony
    • Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006 with permission of the Author.

    A teenage girl writes about the trauma of being pregnant while still in school. The entire pregnancy she is haunted by the thought that she is too young to be having a baby. At the moment of birth, as she holds the baby in her arms, all negative thoughts are forgotten.

    in Growing Up Poems by Teens

    Not yet do the parents know
    they will soon be the youngest grandparents on the block.

    Walking through the store,
    everyone stares, but no one says a thing.

    The girl tries to conceal her secret from the world,
    but this eight months will not allow her that simple pleasure.

    She is alone now. Her mother is by her side,
    but that is not enough; her child has no father.

    Her stomach turns, nervous at the thought that someday a child will ask
    why he has no daddy, why she made him leave.

    She gets sick at the thought of having to explain
    this confusing story of her terrible past to her child.

    At school, her friends smile. They buy her cute things,
    trying to still be her friend and act like they accept her problems.

    But they don't;
    they never accepted her to begin with.

    She could see right through their smiling faces to their souls,
    so cold she shivered.

    Or was it a shiver of fear?
    She knows she's too young.

    Getting out of the car, another one hits.
    "Breathe," her mother tells her. "Breathe."

    It is over now, but she stays there in her mother's arms,
    rocking, being pacified by her mother as if she is a baby.

    Thinking, wishing, knowing
    that she's too young.

    Twelve hours later, holding a new life in her arms,
    her new life, she cries.

    With tears running down her face,
    she thinks of nothing else but this precious life in her arms.

    Not about her parents, her classmates,
    the strangers at the store, or about the child's father,

    Just about the beautiful baby boy
    that has now given her life whole new meaning.

  7. 5. I Didn't Want To Leave You

    • By Mackenzie Y
    • Published by Family Friend Poems February 2014 with permission of the Author.

    This is a poem describing what happened to my best friend Amy. Her mom made her move away and leave her boyfriend behind.

    in Hurting Poems by Teens

    I didn't want to leave you.
    I wanted to stay,
    but my mother said I had to go,
    and so she took me away.

    Our baby lives inside me.
    She grows a little each day.
    Though I'm too young,
    I love our daughter either way.

    The house that I stay in
    is too far away from you.
    Our baby needs a father near,
    but I don't know what to do.

    If only you could come here.
    I miss you a lot.
    My mother won't allow it,
    but who says we'll get caught?

    I'm six months pregnant,
    and I'm really starting to show.
    Even at my new school,
    everyone will know.

    Each day she grows bigger,
    and her due date nears,
    and without you with me,
    who will soothe my biggest fears?

    I didn't want to leave you ,
    and my goodbyes weren't classy,
    but I really wish you were here.

    To my unborn baby.

  9. 7. These Will All Be Mine

    • By Brittany Koopman
    • Published by Family Friend Poems September 2008 with permission of the Author.

    A message to all teen moms, you can make it on your own. I became pregnant and wrote this when I was a junior in high school.

    in Pregnancy Poems

    The time I spent waiting
    The worry of what might be
    The wonder if I'll make it
    These are all mine
    The fear on judgment day
    The excitement there too
    The test awaiting me
    These are all mine

    The ticking of time after the test
    The waiting on the results
    The racing of my heart in my chest
    These are all mine
    The shock of the results
    The breathtaking awe
    The two little pink lines
    These are all mine

    The fear of the new
    The worry of family's thoughts
    The pure excitement for now knowing
    These are all mine
    The joy of each day
    The excitement of what's to come
    The joy of another life
    These are all mine

    The days go by
    The classes we take
    The books we read
    These will all be mine
    The weeks go by
    The names we hate
    The name we pick
    These will all be mine

    The months go by
    The growth of my stomach
    The readiness written on my face
    These will all be mine
    The time finally comes
    The time to be a mommy
    The birth of a new life
    These will all be mine

    The first day here
    The first little cry
    The awe of the baby
    These will all be mine
    The day he comes home
    The excitement and joy
    The family gathered around to see
    These will all be mine

    The time goes by
    The feeling of him growing up
    The love I see in his eyes
    These will all be mine
    The days go by
    The first cry and squeal
    The first laugh
    These will all be mine

    The weeks go by
    The first time he holds his head up
    The first cold he catches
    These will all be mine
    The months go by
    The first tooth comes
    The baby talk grows
    These will all be mine

    The years go by
    The grief from him growing up
    The joy of seeing my baby
    These will all be mine
    The time goes by
    It seems lost
    No matter what
    I will always hold on to this

    The pitter-patter of the footsteps
    The soft cry in the night
    The laughs and giggles
    These will all be mine
