Divorce Poem by Teens

This is a poem based on what I felt when I was eleven years old and my parents divorced. It was devastating for me, and it took me a couple of years to finally accept it. But this is based on what I felt back then, and how I felt when my father moved out.

A Story In The Stanzas (Daddy, Daddy)


Published: November 2011

He broke me when I was eleven years old
I knew no worse pain
I know the truths of the lies he told
I nearly went insane

He moved out and lived with her
Where he remains to this day
I miss the way we once were
Before he moved away

I lost all of my respect
And my confidence
I just wish I could forget
I've built myself a fence

The world was a dreary place
For my eleven year-old eyes
Tears would always run down my face
Like rain from the skies

I hung my head in utter sorrow
As I end my fifth grade year
Knowing I won't see him tomorrow
Was enough to bring on tears

Daddy, Daddy please come back
Mommy's crying and I am too
Daddy, Daddy, pick up the slack
I don't know what else to do

Daddy, Daddy I miss you so
Please don't let me see
Daddy, Daddy, please don't go
Daddy you abandoned me
