While you were sleeping peacefully,
I was restlessly tossing on my bed;
Sleep evaded me, fear gripped me.
While you were chasing other girls,
I was steadfastly praying to God;
Happiness, for me, was in absentia.
While you were gallivanting,
I was almost out of my mind;
I had nothing to hold on to.
When it was that time of the month,
I had many fears viz.:
an unwanted pregnancy,
becoming a baby momma,
a crumbled education,
Thankfully, it came,
Gracefully, it flowed;
Hugely relieved, I was.
It won’t happen again,
It mustn’t happen again;
Next time, use a condom.
