My Testimony - Coming out of the Darkness

Seems that mostly my whole life has been darkness. I was a happy enough kid, but then I started having sex and things just got all messed up. There were all the tragic breakups, ripping my heart apart from loving someone then being separated from him. Then at 17, I got pregnant. I didn’t want to mess up my college plans, so I had an abortion. Boy, I wish I’d known then what I know now. I wish I’d known how messed up my life would be over killing my baby.
