Why Can't I feel Anger

Updated on August 14, 2012

They say don't show anger

When they pour out all their lies

To the Judge speak slow and clearly

And look into his eyes

Don't say bad things about the mother

Even if it is all true

Concentrate on your Daughter

And protecting all her youth

These words seem true and simple

For the ones who follow rules

But I've drawn swords with the devil

Who'll use a child as her tool

Why can't I feel anger

While my child drowns in the rain

when all the court will offer

Is a childhood of pain

Why can't I feel anger

when I'm drying all her tears

Why can't I feel anger

When our futures full of fear

      Very accurate poem. I totally agree and am frustrated as well with the situation that children from divorced parents go through. It's also very hard, as a parent, to watch other people take control of your child's life and turn it towards the bad. The worst thing a parent can do is use their child as a weapon during custody cases =( Thanks for your poem.

      Simba, that's a powerful message there. Adults don't understand the pain they put their children through when they's irresponsible as your poem rightly points out. Will be sharing this for you.
