The Ugliness of Divorce



My parents taught me the Christian ways.

I was taught to obey what the Bible says.


I was proud of my parents!  I really was!

And loved them so much…  Just because!


They meant everything to me!  I was proud!

Until one day...  There appeared “a dark cloud.”


It was like a “darkness” hovered above.

Leaving their marriage empty of needed love!


Though they were together many years.

There were many cracks that soon appeared.


I say a once happy home soon destroyed.

Being with one another….  They no longer enjoyed!


How could this happen! I had wondered…

To see a happy marriage “totally plundered


As sin crept in...  And allowed to prevail.

Very soon this marriage simply failed.


May this be a warning for me and you…

That our commitment remains faithful and true!


If your marriage is heading toward separation…

Please seek God for a healing and restoration!


If your planning to have a divorce..

Jesus’ love can put it on the right course!


He can replace the brokenness and hurt within..

And can put your lives back together AGAIN!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
