WHEN MY PARENTS GOT A DIVORCE

Seen them going back and forth
One would scream other complain
Things started getting serious
Decisions will be made.

My parents got a divorce
Hardest thing I could take
Almost like one of them died
Though I see them in my life.

I miss the one I don't see much
It happens to be my dad
I needed his voice that means well
I needed him to teach me.
How to be more of a man
His strong touch
Lifting me up when I'm down
Encouraging me like he knew how.

Seen them when times were good
Smiling and laughing
Everything working out
Nothing to worry about.
Nothing to stress about
Getting the blessings
Family was strongest with them both
Practicing what we preach.

Jon Otano Claim this poet

The topics I write about are very diverse, so are the poetry styles I apply. I started writing poetry in high school in 05. I had written some poetry during class and showed some of my classmates who enjoyed it! I then was chosen to have my poetry in the school newspaper for each month! I done a lot of my work in the library. I met a woman who i showed my work to that worked there, and she said she knew a man that works on the radio! Then i was able to read two poems off the radio. A news reporter who appeared on the station as well decided to do a report on me and I've been writing ever sense. :) If Anybody want to friend request me on Facebook feel free too! Just look up Jon Otano I should be easy to find! :) more…
