Final Line

The worst place to be

Is the one you shouldn’t be.

I’m in that place,

so don’t envy me.

No one should have to know

What it’s like to go

Through a house of hells

Every wall is a foe.

When parents won’t split.

Both too afraid to quit.

“For the kids sake”

Is a load of shit.

If you care what’s best,

Put it to rest.

Give up the ghost.

Give up on that pest.

Just face that fear

And stop all the tears.

Do what is best

And get us out of here.

It’s a lot to take in

But it’s the only way to win.

You deserve better

Than a pile of dumb tin.

The kids will be fine.

This is your sign.

It’s time to draw

That final line.
