Holding back my tears discreetly,
Garnering strength to carry on,
Praying in the morning's dawn.
Disappointment fills the heart,
How to end, where to start.
Fear invades with every thought,
Peace of mind cannot be bought.
Warily trudging through this day,
Life's bent arrows sling this way,
Broken heart continues beating,
Beaten soul continues breathing.
Sorrow greets my ground low spirit,
Laughter peals but I can't hear it,
Overwhelmed by such a grief,
Sadly wearing disbelief.
Days go by I'm still inhaling,
Deep inside my heart is failing,
Breathing in, breathing out,
Air with such a dreadful doubt.
My children laugh to keep from crying,
Beneath the laughter they are dying,
What will become of their sweet souls,
Whichever way the court controls.
Victimization claims the child,
Killing feelings soft and mild,
Breaks a tiny gentle heart,
A little life is torn apart.
All I'm breathing is divorce,
Such a hurtful driving force,
Holding pain until I'm pale,
Waiting silently to exhale.
*My son is going through a divorce. I have listened to him and seen every emotion he is going through. This poem is for him.
