Young Mum

Young Mum

They said my life was over,
They said my life was gone,
They said I'd made a big mistake
In becoming a young mum.

They said my future was ruined,
That any chance of a life lay tattered,
They all shook their head and didn't understand,
That to me being a mum was all that mattered.

They said I'd end up getting bored,
Of the disturbed sleepless winter nights,
Changing nappies and making bottles,
Were no comparison to student drunken fights.

But here I am to tell them,
Two and a half years down the line,
Becoming a mum was the hardest,
Yet best decisions in my mind.

I have a two year old daughter,
And a newborn princess safe with me,
Holding them close and wiping their tears,
It's not a life I live regrettably.

I adore every waking stressful minute,
Nobody but another mother could comprehend,
My children are not only my children,
But my lifelong little friends.

So when you see a young mother,
And shake your head in shame,
Remember this poem I wrote on here today,
And know that mother probably feels the very same.

I could have chosen a life of crime,
A thief, a crook or other,
But instead I live my life every day,
Being a devoted and loving mother!
