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.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
