Divorce Poem

My Broken Dream

When I was very young my parents split up, and I had to stay with my mom. I recently moved across the country from my dad and his side of the family, and I decided to write this poem about my family kind of falling apart and how I feel inside about it.

Broken dreams
Turning into silent screams.
Listening to the loud noise.
Oh boy, how it destroys
The way things used to be.
A family now starting to flee,
Broken into pieces.
Now my heart screeches.
Deep inside my heart
Everything's falling apart.

If you look into my eyes
You'll then start to realize
The things I say are lies.
Can't you hear my cries?

I wanna go back to the start
Before I got a broken heart.
I miss my family as a whole,
But life decided to take a toll.
If I reach inside of me,
Maybe, just maybe, I'll be free.
