Divorce Poem


My poems on this site are dedicated to my four children who had a front row seat for the saddest show on earth. Ed Iacona (me) has dedicated his professional life to media and education. Although I have written in many styles I chose this form to share our stories and feelings.

Staying Power

© Edward Iacona

When the going gets tough, the tough get going
that's a proverb we've heard before
That doesn't mean for your marriage
you should be quick to use the door.

You made a lifelong commitment
and life isn't always sweet.
Marriage is not like computer spam
you just can't click on DELETE.

You needed change? A different world?
A metaphysical point of view?
Best reassess your self help books dear,
because real life is not all about YOU.
