Staying Power - Poem by Edward Iacona

Ed Iacona

When the going gets tough, the tough get going
That's a proverb we've heard before
That doesn't mean for your marriage
One should be quick to use the door.

You made a lifelong commitment
And life isn't always sweet.
Marriage is not like computer spam
One just can't click on DELETE.

You needed change? A different world?
A metaphysical point of view?
Best reassess your self help books dear,
Because real life is not all about YOU.
