Peace at Any Cost

Peace at Any Cost

A Poem by Daniel Gardner

A thought about what I am going through


There once was a time where I was happy to be blind

A time of misunderstood happiness

Confusion of the mind

I have been wrong in my life

I have been wrong to my love

I never understood why I could not become the man she wanted me to be

Now I understand why

I have a sickness of the mind but that does not mean I have an excuse

Now she left me to seek her own ends

To be with a man she swears is just a friend

How am I to see different when she screams I love you to him?

A cleaver ruse I feel is the truth

What am I to do?

I love my wife, I love my family

I just want a chance to ensure our future

I don’t know what to do

I am lost but try to work on myself

But I do not want to live in this hell.
