Standard

DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO LOSE YOUR INNOCENT APPROACH TO MEN

WE ARE YOUTHFUL AND REFRESHING ; YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL AND VERY SWEET

YOU ARE A WOMAN AND VERY SOFT AND IT WOULD BE A GREAT LOSS FOR YOU TO BE HARDENED

AND SOPHISTICATED TO THE WORDS OF MEN

BEING A WOMAN IS GREAT.

WHEN A GUY TELLS YOU THAT HE LOVES YOU AND YOU ARE A TEENAGER……

Standard

Teenaged orphan girls, Adullam Orphanage, Obuasi

WHEN A GUY TELLS YOU THAT HE LOVES YOU AND YOU ARE A TEENAGER, WHAT WILL YOU SAY? GIVE REASONS

As my request I will rather tell you NO. Because can not take good care of me. Secondly, I will tell you that you will rather stop learning. And every day thinking about the guy. Thirdly, the man will tell you to have sex with you. After having sex with him and you impregnate, he will never accept the baby. But now you will be the loser and he will gained. And he will still continue his school, meanwhile you the loser will drop out of school. So is for me I will never have a boyfriend.

I WISH I WERE A BIRD

Standard

 I wish I were a bird that could fly away to escape from

the whips of father’s wicked cane.

Why must I suffer for slightest mistake?

If I knew I was to be born to a wicked father,

I would have told God to let me die at birth.

When I return from school to enjoy life at home,

My father hate to hear that we are on holidays

My report he will not read to congratulate me

This act of my father makes me hate going home

But no school can keep you from childhood to adulthood.

All I wish is to be a bird that could fly away to ecape the whips

Of father’s wicked cane.
