- What Matters
Two parents struggling to put their differences aside
Suppressing these feelings from everyone else.
Acting normally around their family,
As if they’re at the pinnacle of their relationship
Trying to keep the image of the perfect family.
But both see the ominous signs of extirpation.
How could this happen?
A relationship that seemed okay, turn around so quickly?
Like a dry forest,
The smallest spark setting it aflame,
Rampantly burning with no turning back.
The confession was near
To themselves and to their family.
The news of this separation wouldn’t come easy.
How do you tell someone the end is near?
The news will be inopportune
No matter how it is presented.
The word was out.
It was all said and done.
When it came down to the facts
The family was better off.
With the love and solace they gave each other
It was safe to say that divorce was the way,
and the family would continue on.
The separation made everyone stronger and closer
