If they lived in our four walls

Updated on September 11, 2012

Some take it just through envy
As green is all they see
Without a thought of fear and pain
They'll cause for you and me

She must be right
She's a woman
Is the method how they think
Despite the fact she wakes

Each morning just to drink

What could have been their reasons
To change your life this way
When they knew all of her problems
And watched her every day

Did they do it for their ego's
To say they have big hearts
Not thinking bout your future
As they tore your life apart

If they lived in our four walls
Witnessed all that we did see
Or see you reaching out your arms
Screaming loud for your Daddy

Then they could never raise their heads
Not for one single day
As they've destroyed a child's life
With games they shouldn't play

      So sorry. You have a beautiful little girl. Everything we do is for the children. Yet, it never seems to be enough. You are right. Things are usually in favor of the women, even when they are wrong. Your writing is beautiful. I hope things get better and easier for you and your daughter.

      I think this is supposed to be a sad poem, but there is an odd beauty to it. Perhaps it is your style. Thanks

      Simba...your poem is very moving....I want to cry for both you and your baby girl. This happens so often and it's such an injustice........I'll never understand how the courts come to their decisions, when certain facts are known to them.

      I do hope that your visitation is liberal. I wish you the best.

      Very sad. I'm glad you have found poetry to help you through. And I'll read more of your writings now in the hope that there is evidence you do get to see your daughter regularly.

      Parents should strive to get along for the good of their children. Its a shame when issues like custody have to be settled through the courts, and its even worse when the courts make the wrong decision.
