My Parents Divorcing

©

Published: November 2008

My head is messed up,
like my brother's room.
Life is so confusing.
I feel doomed.
My parents think it's amusing
to play with my mind.
Always wanting to find
someone I can talk to,
a person who will help
me choose the right choices.
My parents try to speak to me,
but I just sit there silently,
listening to voices turn to
drowned out noises,
and every time someone asks
if I'm okay, I just look toward them
and smile and hold my feelings
deep inside somehow.

This poem made me remember when my parents were fighting and I was crying it made me remember all those hard times my sister and I had to suffer we were so confused and lonely, but now are in happier times but we don't talk about what is wrong. This poem made me remember something that I have tried to stop and something like that should never happen again to anyone.

Actually, This made me cry...This is exactly how I feel right now because My parents are making me choose sides and I'm getting "Help" from people that claim to understand but they don't...Day by day more pain fills my heart. Thank you for this wonderful poem.

I like this story because it makes me think of my life. Some days I do hate my life but most days I try not to think about the bad days and only think of the good days and when someone asks me if I'm ok I just look at them and lie and say yes but really I'm hurting inside and I can't tell any one because I'm scared of what they will think of me after I tell them my feelings...

I know exactly how you feel. I myself have gone through divorce. It isn't a pleasant experience. It's very confusing, specially at a young age. And I kept my feelings to myself for awhile...mostly to be strong for my family. It was a hard time for my brother as well. But things will fall into place eventually.
Hope for the best,
Katie.
