Barry Van Allen


Aftermath - Poem by Barry Van Allen

After 18 years of marriage,
she said to him - ' it's over ' ! ,
It was not even close to being
from the blue! ...
That big 'ole '- Teddy bear,
is now out there on his own!

He had not had a drink in 17,
every morning, up at 5,
and then home again at 5 ,
because he loved her for all that he was worth!

After 18 years of marriage,
and 2 children that he raised,
she had the nerve to plant this seed...
- - - neither one was his!

He allowed that she was in control,
and that he had made mistakes,
... she has made a huge one now!

The good news is that he has several friends,
and I am one of them,
that are willing to get hurt - - -
to stop that Teddy - Bear - - -
and keep him out of jail - - -
... when he gets drunk!

    Sad story, but good that he has good friends. Hope he finds true love and he will be able to most likely when he gives up the drinking. Sincerely, Connie Webb (Report) Reply

    And what are friends for if not to save you from yourself? Good for you, Barry - your heart's in the right place!

    To 'the bear', a hug. To you, a handshake. To the woman, forgiveness. (Report) Reply

    There are all kinds of seeds...of hope, of love, of kindness.....then there are those who think it necessary to plant seeds that destroy........thank goodness he has you and his other friends! !
