Twenty-six years ago I became a teen mother of twins. I was mortified and felt I’d never endure the process. So much fear and anxiety, has turned into love and gratitude. I wrote this poem not for my beloved twins, but because of them. Because I learned so much, was so blessed, learned that life is worth living and that teen-motherhood is not only “survivable” but blessedly wonderful. To all current teen moms, please know there is lots of light and love “at the end of this tunnel”. It may be hard, sleepless, worrisome, painful, emotionally draining, frustrating, never-ending, seemingly hopeless, terribly expensive and daunting, but it is doable, amazing and will yield you fulfillment beyond description.
