Sixteen

a selfish girl of only sixteen wanted to marry the man of her dreams.
Her parents said no,no way you’ll marry at this age,so she came up with a plan,i’ll marry him you’ll see!
so ahe got pregant she became,then married,she’d gotten her way.
now she had a huband,a baby and a house to clean.
suddenly the spoiled girl didn’t like this anymore! She wanted to out,and out she went,leaving behind this child of eight.
only returned when the child was sixteen,she wanted to talk,wanted to explain!
Why now I said and left through the door,goodbye mom and I said no more..

    oh no, this is so sad. I am so sorry if this is true. It is her loss mostly, but still a traumatic and deeply emotional thing to live with. heartbreaking but great strength and spirit prevailed in this brave 16 year old!!! hugs! xoxoxo

  • i am sad to say thatis true,the lesson i got out of the whole thing is what a mother is NOT supposed to be,thank God my dad was a very strong man and took it on by himself mostly his parents my grand parents helped too,my pop spoiled me and they tought me how to be strong!

    Sad piece
    I wonder if it was co-incidence she tried to come back into her daughters life when her daughter was 16 too the same age she was when it all started?
    Best wishes

  • theres no telling why she came then,she said she wanted to explain,what was the point!
    i had the chance to get to know herover this past 10 yrs and come to the point,hard as it might sound,she really did us a favor by leaving,tho it didn’t at the time…
