Divorce Poems by Teens
Poems about Divorce
Divorce affects more than just a couple. It affects their children too, and sometimes quite deeply. Even peaceful divorces can leave children and teenagers with emotional scars, like a sense of insecurity and abandonment. Teens especially need to feel love and guidance from both of their parents during their difficult adolescent years. Instead, they might begin to feel that their parents care only about their own happiness and don't really love them. These feelings are normal and difficult to work through. Teens dealing with the divorce of their parents should express their feelings and seek comfort from a trusted friend or family member.
10 Poems about Divorce by Teens
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 meLatest Shared Story

Positive Divorce Poem From Child's Perspective
This is my life:
My parents are split up.
I can't believe 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.

3. HurtYoung Girl Hurt By Divorce
You left me here all by myself,
You went and broke my heart.
By leaving like you did that day,
You tore us all apart.
I'm still young and impressionable,
I thought that you could see.
The part of me that's reaching out,
Longing to be free.
You're still my dad, forever more,
I know that that is true.
And even though you left my mum,
I won't stop loving you.
But my life goes on after you,
As your life will also go on.
But neither my hope nor my happiness,
Will undo what you have done.Latest Shared Story

I walk down this lane.
Full of pain,
waiting for a brighter light.
It seems unreasonable.
It doesn't feel right.
Waiting for her to come home.
My hands start to shake,
my face becomes white.
I look at her,
What a sight.
Her eyes blink red.
Expressions appear dead.
As she walks through the door.
I can't stand much more.
It's tearing out my heart
and leaving a whole.
My minds a bruise.
Lack of use when
it comes to saving life's.
I wish it would stop
before it gets over the top.
Life is rolling downhill
from here and all
I see is a world of fear.
I want to be her eyes so
she can see all the hurt
she's caused this family.
It's like growing up without
a mother. Just a grandmother
fooling herself into playing the
Life is hard.
Life is work.
Something they never
told you is..
Life has no redos.
Just regrets and forgets.
Forgetting what it's like to be whole.
I miss my family.
The smiles of 6.
I used to cry myself to sleep.
Praying that my daddy didn't leave.
Now I ask what is love?
I know it's giving up.
Cause that's how I was raised.
Now it's just my brother and I.
Image what it's like being 7 &
having no one wanting you?
Image what it's like having your mother
forgetting you. It doesn't matter what she said
or did, he's still her kid.
Time was well spent
when our family was more legit.
Now its just coffee and cigarettes.
I walk down this lane.
Waiting for the return of each day.
Over and over again.
Not knowing when
I'm going to give in. Or even
take a break.
My ammo's gone.
The war is won.
Pain When Parents Divorce
The alcohol. The fighting. It was hard to take seeing them like this.
The late nights. The tears. Me waiting for all of this to end.
I didn't want to hear it, but I knew it was coming.
When it only got worse I knew I couldn't keep running.
Then the day came when they both sat us down.
They said 'I'm so sorry but we're over now.'
I cried and ran to my room through my tears it was hard for
me to see.
The hurt in my heart made it hard for me to breath.
The next day dad left. He cried when he hugged me and said 'See you soon. I will call you later, and I will always love you.'
I took it the hardest. I was full of sadness and hate.
I tried to forget I didn't need the pain.
Mom treats me different now. I look just like him.
I ignore them and close myself off. I don't let anyone in.
No one knows my pain. I don't let them. I'm just glad we can still see him.
People ask 'When will you open up and tell me how you feel?' I tell them never.
Cause' acting like it never happened helps it get better?Latest Shared Story

Poem About A Child's Emotions After Divorce
Daddy says he loves me but he doesn't really mean it
Mommy says she cares but I'm not dumb enough to believe it
They both just want the money that comes with the child
Don't you want me?
Daddy says mom's lying that she doesn't really want me
Mommy says she knows the truth that dad doesn't want me
I know it's true but it hurts to know that I'm not wanted
Don't you want me?
I'm your own flesh and blood and daughter too
Why do you ignore me when I love both of you
I give you presents of love but you both decline
Please, can't you listen to what's on my mind
I'm alone and unwanted
Uncared for unloved
But no one can hear me, not even my friends
They still believe I'll be happy till the end
It happened 6 months ago
Though it seems like yesterday
I remember it clearly
It was a cold autumn day
You told me you loved me
Then left through the door
3 bags and a suitcase was all you carried
As you got in your car and drove more and more
Wet tears ran down my cheek
As I heard your last car beep
I knew the fun times and the games were over
No more kisses at night no more bear hugs when I'm sober
No more laughing in front of a warm blazing fire
No none of that because you're a cold hearted liar
For 13 years you only cheated and swore
You weren't the daddy figure I would adore
You tried your best to be a good dad
But somehow at the end of the day I would end up being sad
When I was younger it was easier
I was put into a your arms and you held me tight
You would never let go if I were scared at night
But all those moments are just pale memories
Because of you I was left on the bottom of a hole
I had to find my own way out.
It wasn't easy but I survived
Because my mum and my sister were by my side
I have just one more thing to say
As you live with your new wife, just remember
You gave a 13-year-old girl life
And it doesn't matter what you feel or did
She is still your little kid.Latest Shared Story

One day, the worst in my life
The two that once loved me so,
Ripped my world apart with some few words
That I really wish I had not heard
But that night changed my life
Like the way day turns to night
I had now given up trying to fight.
What happened to richer or for poorer,
For better or for worse?
I look back at those photographs
You two, filled with many content laughs
But that one night, which will never be forgotten
Changed my life, not for better, but for worse
A light had been turned out like there had been a curse.
Perhaps I could have done something
To stop this grim thing
Was it me? Did I play a part in this?
You say it is not so, but how could I ever know?
Perhaps, just perhaps, I could have changed your ways
And I may not be in such a daze.Latest Shared Story

9. The WindowPoem Regretting No Relationship With Mother
I look out the window and what do I see?
Except for a better version of me?
He did the right where I did the wrong
So, I'm the one that wrote this song
I'm here soaking up regret in the air
You died thinking I never did care
I wish I would've made the right choices
Now it's too late, but I hear the voices
Saying all I should've said
I never knew you would end up dead
If I could have one last moment with you
I would die to let you know I love you too
The three seconds it would have took to make that call
To show how much I cared after all
So if you were here what would you ask of me?
I just want to know what you would want me to be
If you were here would you be proud?
But now you're lost in the grim reaper's shroud
You were the one that taught me right
And you were stole away in the middle of the night
Now I lay awake in bed
With thoughts of you in my head
Why didn't I say that four letter word?
If only you hadn't died before you heard
I was so wrong and now I see
You only wanted the best for me
So as I lay here seeing you now
I only wish I could tell you somehow
That even though the call you awaited never came
I did and do love you all the same
And now I only wish I could have seen the light
As I look out the window on this fateful nightLatest Shared Story
My dad left me all alone and I never see him at all. People say that divorce is hard and they have no possible idea.
Why did it have to be me
This isn't how it should be
My father was never there
I don't even know if he cares
My mom was in a relationship for years
I saw her through all her fears
I saw her cry at night
I saw the day she had to fight
I was there through it all
Back then she seemed so small
Now she stands so tall
It is like she can touch the sky
To those problems she said bye
While I laid in bed and wondered why
My perfect life fell, just died
My dad choose to do wrong things
Now just thinking about it stings
Now I have another sister and brother
They make me smile like no other
My dad is having another baby
Now I thought that was just crazy
My heart is bleeding like it was stabbed with a knife
But it's just me wondering what happened to my perfect life.Latest Shared Story
