When I Was Really Young

When I was a girl, I had the biggest hopes and dreams,

I’d climb every mountain and bathe in the streams.

I would work hard every day buy a car and be free.

Then stand tall on my own for the whole world to see.

But life came along and knocked me down a few pegs.

It was hard to be alone with nothing firm under my legs.


When I was still young, merely fifteen,

I gave birth to a child, a boy it would seem.

Everyone tried to tell me, the right and wrong way,

To raise my son and build a life, like I had nothing to say.

I put my foot down strong and firm from the start.

Who were they to tell me what I felt in my heart?


When I was young, my whole world shifted.

Everything changed with the son I’d been gifted.

All my goals and my dreams were now for my son

He had to come first before everything and everyone

I knew I would struggle and sometimes slip and fall.

But I would get up every time and learn from it all.

Hey there! I'm Terri. One of my biggest hopes is for this blog to bring you many laughs, a few shockers, the odd tear and maybe even some scares! Through my writing, I would like to take you away from the normal and bring you into my world! I love to bake. Especially if I get to eat it all before the kids and hubby get home. I enjoy scrapbooking, or a least I like the thought of scrapbooking because if I am honest, there is no way I have time for that! I love playing the occasional first person shooter game. The reason I only play occasionally is because I get quickly sucked into a severe red dot addiction.
