Forgiveness

My mother said, “Lauryn,
you’ll know when it’s time
to give yourself away. Just
be sure he’s worthy.”  

Like many parents, my mother
was wrong about some things.
How could she have known that
the man taking my innocence
shared her bed?

I hope the daughter growing in me
will forgive my mistakes.
