I should feel blessed for bringing you into this world,
But I am also fearful of the many obstacles and perils that may come your way.
Though your younger years may be all peaches and cream,

A hot and confused lost teen
A baby mother at the age of 14
your not expected to go far in life.
They want you to be a hoe, not fit to be a wife
bikini clad booty flaunters degraded by your own kind
Your only concerns are expected to be fashion and glamour,
disregarding the beauty of your
But I will teach you how you were once queens of civilizations
how you were once the
back bones of great African Nations
A role that can be yours once again!
I will help equip you with knowledge of self
For you my child failure is not in the plan
cuz after you learn how to say
"Mama" and "Dada"
your next words will be
