Divorce Poems by Teens
Poems about Divorce
Divorce affects more than just a couple. It affects their children too, and sometimes quite deeply. Even peaceful divorces can leave children and teenagers with emotional scars, like a sense of insecurity and abandonment. Teens especially need to feel love and guidance from both of their parents during their difficult adolescent years.
