Prompted: Life Changing Moment

Life-changing Moment

Write a 16-line poem (rhyming or non-rhyming) about a moment from your childhood that changed your life for the better.


It was this accident that kept them together
They were never truly meant to be
So when they finally went their separate ways
 It wasn't a shock nor a pity

The fights had gotten too intense 
The hatred too hard to hide
Their words full of anger and venom
Hearing them always caused the little girl to cry

The mother was the one who moved away
In the house the father stayed
 The little girl was shuffled around
From house to house, place to place

The day the divorce was finalized
A wrong finally made right
To many, it would make them sad
But this girl was never so excited
