Success In Failure Or Failure In Success

We have moved apart:
husband-wife relationship is a failure.
We are sacrificing for our kids:
parents will never fail.

The boy kid's expression:
'I never feel alone but feel vacant'.
The girl kid's expression:
'I am secure, still I have had fear'.

When their parents bring them to a resort,
the kids ask for a home.
When their parents bring them to a restaurant,
the kids ask for a bowl of noodles.
When their parents meet them separately,
the kids ask for lap and roof together.

The kids grow in body-
mental growth is like a house of cards, not stone:
they need guns for self-protection!

    Lovely poem. Please parents swallow your pride and get back together for the sake of the kids. I like the 3rd verse most.
