Shattered Dreams........ - Poem by Ravi Sathasivam

God, heavenly thrown his blessings
to you on your wedding day
And you have promised him ' I do'
Your loved one wished you all the best
And you have promised them to be a great couple
Life is a lesson and you have to learn it
Pain and struggle are part of life you have to face it
When you complete your life with these principles
then you have completed your oath ' I do '
Today, you have chosen a different path to live
Making both lives miserable and want to end with divorce
It is easy for you to live away from each other
but painful to your children to live with grief
The day will come then you will remember
when you struggle with pain without your partner
in your life stemming from divorce
and when agony will make you handicap
Divorce is not a solution and live happily with your
partner without removing your ring.
