“Trust in the Law” they say

 

As if Family Law is a clear set of rules

 

A trustworthy shuttle from one island of family form into another

 

No room for reasonable doubt.

 
 

What Law has the right

 

To say when a father sees his child?

 
 

What Law can slice Solomon-like through family homes?

 

Savings for a future now altered?

 

A parent’s precious hours with those whom they value more

 

Than any building or bank account?

 
 

Is that our excuse to children now grown in years to come?

 

As we beg forgiveness for the parental spite

 

The wrenching apart

 

The money wasted

 

Will we meekly say in our defence: “We trusted in the Law”?

 
 

Could we not have chosen instead

 

To trust in ourselves?
