Young Dad

by Rain

I got married when I was only sixteen,
not old enough to buy cigarettes
but old enough to be a married man.
My wife was only fifteen, now she blames me
for all her  lost hopes and dreams.
Today I turned twenty-one
I already had a daughter and three small sons.
Now I am working two full time jobs,
having four kids is a lot of mental work,
"I ain't laughing, this S#### ain't no joke!
I know we got married way too young,
we'll probably have problems
until maturity comes.
"if I had it all to do over again,
I wouldn't change a thing!
You see, I love my wife and my four children.
