My Life

This is my life:

My parents are split up.
I can't believe that they gave up.

My life isn't the same.
It is different and plain.

This is so different than the life we had together.
I thought that we would last forever.

Instead of feeling crabby,
Now I am happy.

Now their lives have just begun.
I wonder what their lives are going to become.

But now I have two families, and that is cool,
Compared to a lot of my friends at my school.

So I am not the only one who feels this way,
So I just wanted to say

No matter what, they support me and they love me.
I just want them to be very happy.

This is my life, and I am very glad.
This is the life with my mom and dad.

My wife and I are getting a divorce after only a year and a half. Aubree, our daughter will be one in less than two weeks.
my dad left us before I was even born and I hated growing up without a dad. I have always sworn that this fate will not weigh on my children.

This is such a beautiful poem......Sometimes we as parents stay together for the kids even when we are out of love but the kids rather see us divorced and happy than having a miserable marriage
