Hindsight

The fifteen year old pregnant girl could not look into the future to see 

A good marriage 

A beautiful home 

Smart and able children 

All she could think about was how she was going to finish high school and go to college?

She wondered if what she had with her boyfriend was love or obligation?

She imagined a life in the hustle of NYC 

She couldn’t see the future 

She saw the looks, read the statistics, and disappointed her loved ones back then. 

I want to travel back in time to tell her she’s on the right path 

To encourage her on those dark days 

To let her know in twenty years, it’s all okay

We are happy, healthy, and love one another with the utmost loyalty, fortitude, & humility
