So, I was asked how marriage lasts, how years flow into years?
Oh, I was asked how marriage lasts, how do you move past fears?
Yes, I was asked how marriage lasts, how can you trust that long?
When I was asked how marriage lasts, I pondered what goes wrong.
I think how long a marriage lasts is not about romance
It’s much more: it’s faith and trust and determined acceptance.
It’s about having the faith that no matter what fate brings
You’re sticking together like the promise made on those rings
This prompt was for a poem with lines of fourteen syllables, ideally in iambic heptameter. My iambs are a complete mess, but here’s what I’ve got! 🙂
