A Child’s Poem

My mum and dad are inside who I am

They are part of me wherever I go

When they divorced, they hated each other

And that was like they hated me

And when they hurt each other they hurt me

When Mum did not want me to see Dad
she wasn’t seeing me

When Dad didn’t want me to love Mum
he wasn’t loving me

Now that’s stopped and they get on OK

So I can be who I am
with my Mum and dad inside of me.
