divorce..these days

the passage of rights
have turned to wrongs

the depth of love
have turned to hate

funny how 
everything changes
and stays the same....

the love and the hate
merely transfers
to someone new

written in 1975

    Love is a strong emotion and when it transforms, it can turn to hate. With time and understanding, however, sometimes we learn to forgive and establish friendship. When we feel love turning to hate, it may be time to search our souls for our own blame. This can help us to forgive, but it is not an easy pursuit. Very thought-provoking and powerful write, Janetta! I'm sure most of us can relate. Well done! Love, Carolyn
