Marriage And Divorce


If marriage is a fortune,
Then divorce is a misfortune:
Failure at one of the greatest
Attempts in life.

Divorce is a miscarriage:
To abort the shared dreams,
Joys, and every fulfillment
That marriage brings.

It is a cruel rending of two
Intertwined, spirited hearts—
Leaving them to slowly
And painfully bleed to death.

Marriage fulfills, but divorce
Is an unfortunate waste.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
