A Childs Divorce

The child with eyes of haunting pain Reflects an outcome of no gain. Whilst parents, argue, bicker, shout. The offspring’s future is in doubt. Adults engrossed in pure self Contemplate sharing wealth. Children - the perfect pawn, Become the victim of their scorn. Inanimate objects of meaningless worth More important than their child’s birth. And so, with much disregard A child is condemned through this facade. Divorce - where parents just move on, Leaves a broken child who does not belong.

It's so sad when the pain of the child is overlooked in these situations. A thought provoking poem, and the title says so much, too.
