Daddy, why do you and Mommy fight?
Daddy, why are you leaving?
Daddy, please donít go.

No, I barely remember that day.
Such a long time ago.
Really, itís not a big deal.
Iíve moved on.
Too much ado about nothing.

Mommy, does Daddy still love me?
Mommy, was it my fault?
Mommy, please donít cry.

I donít believe in marriage.
I donít believe in God.
Really, Iím fine on my own.
It all amounts to
Much ado about nothing.

I donít hear from my father.
I canít talk to my mother.
God, are you there?

Yes, I once believed
But Iíve grown past that.
Really, Iím over it.
Those childhood games-
Much ado about nothing.

Father , is that You?
Lord, Iím on my knees.
God, please take this pain.

Child, Iíve heard you.
Iíve never once left.
Really, believe Me,
Though thereís been pain,
Iíve made something out of nothing.

This is a sad reminder of how divorce is so hard on children! It rips apart their foundations and causes deep hurts, they lose security and trust as this well shows. Thank God the MC in this poem let God heal and restore!

In all circumstances, our God is in control. Fret not, for God knows the plans He has for us, plans for welfare and not for calamity, to give us a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11 NAS).

Loved that last line, which gives God room to move - doing what he does best - creating from nothing.
