By Maltia:

My entire life I’ve been searching for happiness
I began to think it was non existent
Having a child young didn’t make my life easy
But I do not regret it because it gave me motivation
Motivation to wake up each morning
Motivation to love
Motivation to strive for the best
And every time I see my child smile
It takes a load off my chest
And brightens up my day
My child’s love makes the pain go away
She’s all I’ve ever wanted
And more than I’ll ever need
Who would’ve known that having a child could bring me happiness at 19

    Hi there, I love this poem. I’m writing a research paper on the empowerment of young moms and I was wondering if I could quote some lines from your poem. Please email me at shae11@yorku.ca. Thanks so much.
