As I've read many of your other poems, I have to say this is a bit dry and generic. It doesn't really look into the emotion of how that feels. Textbooks say that children feel guilty and such as if it is their fault. But if thats to be true than the majority of it has to be the younger of the possible age groups. Some older children may feel the same, but in my experiance, and of those I have talked to, the older children don't feel as if its their fault. Just sayin.

Thanks for commenting, Jay, and like you say, I guess it varies from child to child when it comes to the issue of a divorce in the family.--Ngoc
