Marriages ! How many times?

As many as it takes?


How many times?

The greatest truth

Mankind has ever


That he will


Die alone one day.

With that awareness

In tact,

Here comes

Man’s biggest test

Marriage and divorce

First divorce?

Second divorce?

Here mankind

Again going back!

A third can make

A terrible mess.


With kids in the


Many times more

You’re out!

Standing at the


Mista / Sista


Before you open

Your mouth

Am sure you thought

about this

Before coming here

Once more.

Take a second,


I am not speaking

About a second


Some do that.

They say that it helps

them to think!

Don’t you go babbling

I do!

Think, I do what?

But you do have

The right to remain


For twice before

When you said

I do!

The world witnessed

your divorce

Even now it’s being

Used against you!

Being alone

Should never be

Anyone’s problem

It is being with


Creating problems

For you

Blaming each other

Of being unable to

is possibly strike three

You have been


It’s not a pleasant place

To be.

Remember it’s


To “ lie” before

God and man?

Holding the Bible

In one hand.

What’s on your


Young man, young

For better for

Deaths no relief

Love having a


But desire to be


Not worried about

Strike three?

Having your cake

Eating it too.

That is miserable

The curse came


After the first,

Then the second

Says what about you?


The third?

Being alone

Should never be

Anyone’s problem!

      Thanks for reading "AE" and as always your sincere and moving comments . This is how we as humans have always been able to explore the boundaries of our imagination and move on to higher heights and deeper depths . But it seems in this one area , humans through the earth are suffering and paying the ultimate price.

      What I have observed however is the addictive nature of this epidemic ,almost like clockwork it spreads from parent to child. I my book I addressed this on several fronts , and this is why I stress so heavily on helping kids , but I will do so from my books .

      Sadly I have come to learn how to devised ways to help without direct intervention. If you already anticipate the pending danger find ways around it because it simply wastes you already short time here.

      Very moving Sky. I'm a child who has had multi stepfathers. My Mother just couldn't seem to get it right although i know she tried. Sadly the child makes the same mistakes. A great message here as always..Thank you..

      Blessings Hattiemattiemae, I placed a question for those of today, like you said earlier many things can get in the way, mainly life ,during dating , marriage etc.

      It truly was designed to be one time marriage, raise a family and teach them in the ways of that family, but then came life for that individual and a diminishing of those blueprinted values.

      I was taught that very way early and I grew to prove that myself , but I am a realist and I believe in Logic, making it what it is , and how we can all dealt with it as it is.

      "Life" applies to us.

      It is not as difficult as people make it . I know that I have found mine and that's what made me happy to share because the joy of living is sharing the best that you have, being unfazed by all other entities as they also

      have a right to survive and thrive.

      It's a spiritual awakening that cannot be disturbed or touched . It's true Love for oneself and for life and living.One can only share that which he possess.

      Your final line is exactly what I am saying I share with you the truth that one needs not fall to learn, the way that our world is heading it's ok to learn from others especially your parents and when you are wise enough to recognize love and sincerity , that will guide you to those others where learning and growth is free and fun.

      Being a child of many divorces I can tell you, you got that right, a big mess and disaster. I'm not sure what you meant about as many times as it takes. In my case it was 7 step parents and te biological parents. It's kind of a calling for me to tell people, Hold up! Get shit together, before you decided to get married and have kids! :) think that is what you're saying, but not sure! :)

      Sincere Thanks Frank . I am glad you like it . I had the perfect song choice at the end , but they wont let it. Doesn't matter , it's hard to break a writer , his/her best work comes while being "alone" and we write mainly about our trails and tribulations if any.

      So we already have the antidote for just about any poison coming our way.Requirement- To thyne own self be true!

      Blessings tile we write again. Thank you!

      I am sincerely grateful Marlena, and at the same time beautifully overwhelmed with such a heartfelt comment comment.

      Thank you very much for reading and exactly understanding the exact message.

      There are so many times we have the perfect subject matter, but that formatting eludes us, I will take your comment to be the insurance that this one came out correct.Thank you.

      It's those selfish acts that blinds our better judgment making us pass up the truth behind our reasons for doing these things, only to say later we are cursed.

      I guess the bible says is correct "what shall it profit a man" He who have eyes to see let them see.

      Thanks again Marlena. As with every new person that comments I will stop by very soon.

      Blessings and Give Thanks.

      Wow, this is a very powerful poem. I really enjoyed the format you used, with sentences and thoughts broken up into three or four word lines. It seems to pack a more powerful punch. And it hits home. How many kids are the product of divorce and broken families? And then to watch a parent do it over and over again? It hurts more people than just the ones going through a divorce. Very emotionally moving.
