The Ugliness Of Divorce


My parents taught me the Christian ways.
I was taught to obey what the Bible says.

I was proud of my parents!  I really was!
And loved them so much…  Just because!

They meant everything to me!  I was proud!
Until one day...  There appeared “a dark cloud.”

It was like a “darkness” hovered above.
Leaving their marriage empty of needed love!

Though they were together many years.
There were many cracks that soon appeared.

I say a once happy home soon destroyed.
Being with one another….  They no longer enjoyed!

How could this happen! I had wondered…
To see a happy marriage “totally plundered

As sin crept in...  And allowed to prevail.
Very soon this marriage simply failed.

May this be a warning for me and you…
That our commitment remains faithful and true!

If your marriage is heading toward separation…
Please seek God for a healing and restoration!

If your planning to have a divorce..
Jesus’ love can put it on the right course!

He can replace the brokenness and hurt within..
And can put your lives back together AGAIN!

    Sad and heartwarming... great! Just out of the blue, did you know you have the same last name as John Pemberton? He's the dude that invented CocaCola by accident! Anyway, this is a great poem! You know, you should enter it in a contest at poeticpossibilities.tk ...you have lots of potential and could win tons of great prizes! Keep up the writing! :)

    Always sad to see any family break apart. Usually it is a "sin" that enters in. Enjoyed your poem !!
