Because they said God doesn’t like divorce.
Because they said I was stuck with the bad choice I made.
Because I believed them.
Because his family said I was good for him
And I would make him a better person
And those words made me feel powerful,
They fed my ego.
Because I didn’t know there was better
Because I didn’t believe I was enough for me.
Because the baby needed a father in the home.
Because I didn’t want to be a failure.
Because I was afraid of being alone.
Because I didn’t know I didn’t need him
To make me happy
But I know better, now.
