My Life

This is my life:

My parents are split up
I can't believe that they gave up

My life isn't the same
It is different and plain

This is so different than the life we had together
I thought that we would last forever

Instead of feeling crabby
Now I am happy

Now their lives just begun
I wonder what their lives are going to become

But now I have two families and that is cool,
Compared to a lot of my Friends at my school

So, I am not the only one who feels this way
So, I just wanted to say

No matter what they support me, and they love me
I just want them to be very happy

This is my life and I am very glad
This is the life with my mom and dad

This is such a beautiful poem......Sometimes we as parents stay together for the kids even when we are out of love but the kids rather see us divorced and happy than having a miserable marriage
