Looking Out the Window while Driving
by Jade

When I was younger, I remember seeing the trees rush by
and leaving everything in the other direction.
Life rushed by far too quickly and before I knew it,
I was looking out at my mom telling me she was having a child.
Five years later, I was soaking up the sun
and staying there till six pm.
I came back two years later to see if anything had changed.
Got into my first serious relationship
with a kind but depressed guy.
In college, I met a guy who was great on paper.
We broke up after we had a fight through text
and four months later
I started to notice that weight in my stomach.
The news that I was pregnant wasn't a surprise just a shock.
Waking up now, I can accept the news with open arms.
I don't put any hate towards my self in the past
for my lack of confidence
or how I chose poor people to be in my life.
I learned my lessons the hard way
and it's best I push the hard feelings out of the way.
I can't say I hate anyone or hope death to anyone in my past.
Just hope things go as well as they can.
