Poems about Divorce

It is an unfortunate fact that divorce has become commonplace in our society. The pain and anguish this is created in a divorce has a ripple effect on the family unit. Often family members are confused as how to act around the now divorced couple. Children are often used as pawns between their father and mother. Each one may try to gain the upper hand in the battle for their children's affection. Getting divorced may be necessary in cases when a relationship cannot be salvaged. However, the couple should keep in mind that the entire family unit will be affected by a divorce.

Last Walk Down Memory Lane

As we sit here in silence, no longer husband and wife
I can't forget the vow I made to love you all my life...

As I find us walking hand in hand in our high school years.

Thinking of the child you took away.
