Broken

December 16, 2008
By Rebecca Boyle, Ellesmere Port, ZZ

A broken home,
A broken life,
A broken child,
No husband, no wife.

The union collapsed,
The deed has been done,
The battle has commenced,
But who has won?

Lives are shattered,
Here comes the pain,
The hurt, the anger,
Will anyone gain?

From these vicious attacks,
Which one will provoke,
The sides have been chosen,
Suffocation means choke,

From choke to death,
As death is release,
Now its over,
And we’ll all be at peace.

This is a poem i wrote when my mum and dad were going through a separation. This is just kind of how i felt during that time.
