It chronicles the hope and heartache of love and acceptance. I ended the book in September of 1988 for two reasons: the logical progression of time from teenager to young adult and the emotional shift from hope to despair. I put a taste of disparity as the last poem to reflect the shift, as well as to tease the curious reader to wonder about the outcome of this pregnant nineteen-year-old.
