Original Poems

Making Believe

Video of children playing;
An exciting time of the year

Different ages, dressed in costumes —
Making believe for their filming mom and dad.
Children laughing, parents laughing;
All seeming so carefree

But the date
On the bottom of the screen
Is telling a different story —

Its really the parents
Who are making believe
At this point

The children have no idea,
The husband has no idea

A decision will be made,
And the laughter will fade away:

And that family

Won’t ever be one

Again
