Between them, separating-us this white piece of paper
all hopes of a future now sadly-annulled.
Their marriage over, divorce-settlement finalised.
One parent's hand grasped instead of another.
This is how our innocents get taken and destroyed
lying on our beds as if it were air-raid bomb shelter
like military veterans, clutching at teary wet pillows.
But we're only conscript-kids amidst the on-going war
crying for what is fundamentally a god given right.
The rights of two parents' that-don't-want to - kill each other.
Allied—sister and brother against each other entrenched.
Between them, separating us the long awaited ruling,
nothing's been won, but certainly, all was irreparably lost.
And it's us weeping kids who paid the greatest cost.
