To a Divorce Woman

Death appeared in your marriage Ugly Words were spoken creating a cause to leave For some there was an applause for your breakup Because some spoke behind your back! You are now a woman in solitude Understanding the value of moving away from the multitude At times, you saw the danger in your marriage But you still believed it could be fixed until You realize that ugly words compounded more ugly words Now you know that nothing is opened by mistake more than the mouth! Both of you said things you should have never said Ultimately, you started to realize the bed meant nothing anymore! Before you knew it, it was too late! Too often one in the relationship will try to be the dictator Soon after that, the other one will be a spectator But despite the calamity of divorce You will stand strong and Know that your next relationship will be without force! You are now a woman in solitude Understanding the value of moving away from the multitude Remain strong; your heart belongs to the man That understands that nothing is opened by mistake more than the mouth!

I feel that many give up too fast on marriage. For better or worse I take seriously, and unless there is unbearable emotional abuse or any kind of physical abuse it is prudent to stay and work out karma. I can relate to your poem having been married going on 38 years. A great poem to contemplate Mark. Congratulations on having this chosen for POTD! : )
