Divorce (Life's Biggest Test) - Poem by Angelique' Rockwell

Through all the drama
I'm still standing strong
My husband still thinks I'll be back
But I know I'm not wrong

He just doesn't get it
Staying would only cause us pain
Everyday of not wanting to be there
Would drive me fucking insane!

What he talks about the most
Is that I've lost so much weight
The only thing he seems worried about
Is that I'll start to date

He doesn't really know
That I've been doing it for awhile
I seriously don't want to hurt him
That's just not my style

Without him, I've changed alot
My weight, clothes, and hair
I'm so much more confident
I don't always feel in despair

It was actually a relief
To finally be on my own
For the first time in my life
Still, my past I will not disown

Our children will always remember
The good times and the bad
And I know from experience
That at times they'll get sad (or mad)

At some point they'll even hate me
But I do think this is best
We'll all come through just fine
One of life's biggest test.

    Divorce is a legal but not likeable thing, yet it is absolutely necessary at times. Your poem rightly concludes that divorce is the life's biggest test.
    When parents ways part, children's disappear altogether.
