For Joshua Stewart

She looked like a queen
Long hair and beautiful eyes
Body shaped like a hourglass
Big butt and thicky thick thighs

Soon as I saw her
I knew I had to make her mine
So I thought up a conversation
Spent some money and my time

OH MY GOD!!! The love making
The best I've ever had
So into her beauty and her body
My intelligent thoughts just fled

She was the center of my world
I enjoyed her company
Up until that awkward moment
When she came crying to me

"You're going to be a dad"
I was told between the tears
Stumped and dumbfounded
Now I'm filled with many fears

How in the world can I be
A role model to anyone
Hell, I'm still in my prime
Foot loose and sworn to fun

Besides Mom raised me alone
Taught me to respect women
And how to take care of myself
But being a man - not a lesson I was given

So what do I do now
With a child on the way
I've ben avoiding it's mother
Don't really know what to say

Based on my own experience
Being my mother raised me well
And the beauty with my seed
Will be a good mom - I can tell

I wish the best for my child
I wish all the things I never had
And I ask for forgiveness
I don't know how to be a dad

Will, I think the boy should be slapped along side the head and told to grow up. If he's old enough to pull it out and use it, he should be responsible for it when it leaks. [smiles]
Nicely done, Netta

My god! This is want to say good because it's written very well, but its more than that. Its very powerful. But don't give up. You became a dad for a reason. Maybe you dont know the reason, but the fates do. Take it from someone who had to wait 23 years to finally meet her biological father: its absolute Hell growing up not knowing who or where your dad is. Maybe its not as hard for boys, but for me it was awful. Even if you don't want to have a relationship with the mother, you should still take major interest in something that had so much fun creating!! : ) But on this, fantastic write! Very emotional. ((((HUGS)))
