Shattered dreams

Shattered dreams........ God, heavenly thrown his blessings to you on your wedding day And you have promised him ' I do' Your loved one wished you all the best And you have promised them to be a great couple Life is a lesson and you have to learn it Pain and struggle are part of life you have to face it When you complete your life with these principles then you have completed your oath ' I do ' Today, you have chosen a different path to live Making both lives miserable and want to end with divorce It is easy for you to live away from each other but painful to your children to live with grief The day will come then you will remember, when you struggle with pain without your partner in your life stemming from divorce and when agony will make you handicap Divorce is not a solution and live happily with your partner without removing your ring.

    You get a 7 for this one. A lot of people don't take marriage serious and they should. People should not get married unless they are sure of what they are doing. Great poem, thanks for sharing.... Lucilla

    yes, I agree with you friend Ravi, Divorce is not a solution..all they have to do is a heart to heart talk about the problems and solve it without breaking a family. I can feel your emotions. I have also a poem with the same title. thanks for sharing and for passing by on my poem. Good day..

    every married couple should be required to read this poem and take a class on managing their marriage. maybe we could prevent so much grief in the world, my friend.

    it seems people just aren't willing to work at marriage these days...some even refuse to marry and only live together... sad times! Good poem, could feel the despair!

    There only a few things in which I would tell a lady to get a divorce and the rest of the time I would tell her to seek counseling and try to work it out..Abuse, alcohol and drug abuse, any addiction that the other person refuses to get help and try to get their life straightened out, etc..Sometimes a person stays when they should go and sometimes they go when they should stay..Great work..You should print it out and give to anyone who is getting married..Thanks for the visit to my work..Sara

    - Ravi, this is the year 2013 .... and everything should be "easy and hassle free" ... but, who or where it is written that "life is easy" - - A marriage is not always a bed of roses. - But, is anyone willing to "bet"? - - I agree with your last two lines, Ravi. - Very well written! (Hope this is "just a poem") - "Divorce is not a solution and live happily with your partner without removingnoise your ring. " - oxox // Anne-Lise :)
