Alone

when she found out she was pregnant

her friend asked her

will you keep it

she said yes

there was no doubt in her mind that this was meant to be

one month pregnant

she moved

to be with the father

whom she found out

had been unfaithful

numerous times

and so he left

but she stayed

she stayed

and she struggled

hungry

lonely

broke

she stayed

she hung on

stayed strong

to bring her child into the world

and she did

this child

so full of innocence

love

purity

she did it

and every day

she is filed with gratitude

for the man who left them

for the man who brought them together

this child saved her life

and continues to do so
