Really good work. It touched me alot. I am 16 and at age 12 I was silly enough to be with a man aged 39 who was HIV and Hep C positive. I just found out that at the time we where together unprotected that he was positive for HIV and Hep C and im still waiting for my results. good work.

this poem changed my thoughts about life, not that I didn't know about STD's or STI's. I hope I would still live with my mom.

Her Unending Faith

"God, if you love me, I know it's right,
Please let us make love tonight,"
She asked Him with a pleading voice,
Thinking she had made the right choice.
She put on music that seemed best,
He would get right to the rest.
She didn't exactly know why she felt,
A cold hollow feeling as he undid his belt.
Her parents found them before it got worse,
She kicked and screamed and hit and cursed,
But ceased when she heard their news.
Many girls had been in her shoes,
They didn't stop him, he caused their strife,
And soon AIDS would take away his life.
See, God really loved her and kept her safe,
And now she has complete and total faith.

Hey, it's me, Kat (that's my old pen name). I just wanted everyone to know that I'm now writing under a different name, so look for more poetry by me under the name Megan Howard. Thanks!
Kara
This poem was the most inspiring poem i have read tonight. It really surprises me that a 14 year old can actually write such powerfull words, that mean so much, and could teach so many. My advice to kat is to keep writting and believing!

Sherika
This poem tells the truth. Sometimes what you think you want isn't always best and GOD has a reason for that. Amen.
Renny
It's a very touching work, definately one of the best I've ever seen. Kat's right here, and I think she's a freak, but the poem still rocks. We are in the computer lab at our high school. She brought up this poem and our principal saw it and made her the honorary principal of our school. noooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!god help us all!!!!!!!!!!save us!!!!!!! That is just the silly English teacher being silly. Anyhoo, Everyone here loves Kat more than anything and they are so glad she attends the new Kat Skye High School for The "Gifted". Oh yeah, Mary loves Kat too. Well, I have to go and join the rest of the class in our bowing lesson to the all-mighty Kat.
Tina
Very striking and powerful poem...terrific, Kat.
Annie
That was amazing. I wasn't even going to read it when I saw how old Kat is, but I'm glad I did. I wasn't aware that something so awesome could come from someone so youthful.
Marsha
Who would have thought someone so young could write something so powerful, because powerful is waht it is. To me it told a story of what could happen if you're not careful and don't have God on your side. I hope she keeps up the good work.
lauren
wow. that is an amazing poem. words can't describe what i feel after reading that, unless mabey i write a poem . . .
Jen
