Who actually wins?

Who actually wins?

A Poem by Dawn

The battling blood families
to see their grandkid
going to court,
spending money on
outrageous legal fees.

Dirty laundries air in a courtroom.
All because you fell out
and were not allowed
to see your grandchild
anymore.

So money talks, inside
a big old building
where the law of the land
decide your fate and the childs.

Times passes, emotions flare,
the child is going from pillar to post.

All because no one could agree.
Poor child or even children.
Growing up in a toxic atmosphere
and bad emotions long high.

Who actually wins long run?

NO one wins really, sad really. Nice write

Sadly, no one wins. The child always loses. These situations rarely result in anything positive, except the attorneys’ back account balance. Well said here.

Shocking and it is common. Families at war. Children become pawns. Adults need to grow up.
