About the Poem
This is a very personal poem. I was 19 when I discovered I was pregnant. I love my son more than life, but at the time I felt very lost and confused. I wrote the poem about two weeks after hearing the news.
Going To Be A Mother
|by Ruwaida Van Doorsen|
|I face the future
Already planned for me
No nothing for me to expect
There’s nothing to wait and see
For my destiny has been mapped out
I shall have no more youthful days
I shall never feel the thrill again
Of raucous, rebellious ways
I shall rear a child for eighteen years
Maybe even longer
For although I’m still a child myself
I’m going to be a mother
