Men Like My Father (Poem)

I wished for a man who wasn’t like my father,

I didn’t want a man who’ll hurt me emotionally,

Yet I dated many men like my father,

Many men hurt me emotionally,

I thought I’ll keep meeting men like my father.

 

Yet because of my father I swore I wouldn’t settle for a man like him,

I saw my mother’s unhappiness,

I swore I would walk away if a man turned out like him,

I didn’t want to have my mother’s unhappiness,

I would rather be single then stay with a man like him.

 

Thankfully, I didn’t end up marrying a man like my father,

The man I married doesn’t hurt me emotionally,

The man I married doesn’t bring unhappiness like my father,

The man I married has been slowly healing me emotionally,

All because I swore I wouldn’t settle for someone like my father.
