Dear you, (You know who you are-
The one who left me and my heart full of scars.)
I pour out my anger and my hurt
to let you know the depths of your work.
For seven long years, I loved you unconditionally.
How dare you go and then betray me.
I believed in you when no one else did.
I gave you my soul and even bared your kid.
If I had known this is who you would become,
I would have tucked my tail, hopped a fence to run.
Did I cause this mess? Of course thats what you would respond.
But you are the adulterer- the cheating one.
I could have cheated. I did not need your permission.
But I believe in the sanctity of marriage and to God I made my submission.
How dare you try to justify your cause.
When you went and broke spiritual and manmade laws.
The truth of the matter is you are simply weak.
Because only with strength can you choose not to cheat.
So there you have it- I am not the weaker sex.
On the contrary my friend, it is you who has regressed.
To go from walking to crawling is characteristic of immaturity.
The definition of a person who lacks self-security.
And although my heart is broke, it is for you I feel sympathy.
For as a grown man you have not learned the value of empathy.
And one day soon you will have the tables turned around.
Yet your mentality will not let you emerge from the situaton sound.
You will have lost everything...your children, your mind, your wife.
A heck of a way to live a so-called life.
Unfortunately though we all have lessons to learn.
Some don't have to go through the fire to know that it will burn.
Others such as you want to run through butt naked.
Charred and burnt up, saying it's everyone elses fault you weren't protected.
Seeing your arrogance, I'll take the path less traveled-the one of humility.
Someone must bow out gracefully so our children have stability.
In doing so I pray for you and for your life to be a success,
and I pray as well for me in my journey to happiness.
The end of an era is simply the beginning of a new one.

Thank God I have my writing to release all my inhibitions and conquer all my fears.
