The Cycle Of Bad Relationships

©

Published: February 2006

THE CYCLE
Since the day of your marriage,
when you very much loved each other.
you were thinking of children,
to be a father and mother.

Your vows were both said,
and you promised to be together
But your love was very weak,
as strong as a feather.

You agreed to have children
but the fighting between you began.
So when the kids came,
It wasn't very fun.

So much screaming and crying,
from both parent and child.
Mother then took the kids,
to get away for a while.

So the kids grew up that way,
no father to help guide.
The kids were always sad,
So every night mother cried.

She told them that it was all okay,
but the kids knew it was not.
Since the days after your marriage,
When you both always fought.

The kids grew up,
making the same mistakes.
Thinking to be in love,
to find out it was all fake.

So the cycle continues,
Only to die,
When the last living person,
gives up on life.
