Had I Looked Back


Had I looked back and listened as they cast aspersions on my morals, I’d have lost my dignity.

But I looked ahead and buried the hopeless past and took a big leap without hesitation and made it hope-full.

Had I looked back and seen the look of supremacy in their eyes, I’d have abandoned you.

But I looked ahead, learnt to let go and welcomed you in my world.

Had I looked back and believed the stereotypes, I’d not have experienced the struggles and the joys of being a single parent, which are twice in everything! Thank you, my baby!
