So today I found out I was pregnant, believe me I am equally shocked.
I still wonder was the e-pill expired or I just misused it.
I am just 17, and I have big dreams and none of them had me getting pregnant at 17.
Is it wrong that I don’t want to be pregnant? that I can’t imagine myself getting pregnant at this moment?
For crying out loud I don’t even know if I want a family. Does this make me a bad person?
Oooh, what will my friends say, what will my parents do to me, what will the church say.
I have thought of getting an abortion but I am scared, scared of what people will say about me, what if I die, what if I never have kids again.
All this questions. When I think of keeping it, I can’t help but wonder, how will my parents respond, will I go to campus, will I accomplish my dreams?
So, I have promised God that I will not have sex again if only I could wake up tomorrow unpregnant. Does this make me a bad person?
I am seated here with my chin resting on my hand feeling like a disappointment to my family.
