A painful journey with my father’s last name,
A last name that wasn’t for me until the end,
Sought a different last name,
A last name that would give me happiness in the end,
A last name I was proud to attach to my first name.
Man after man failed to have the right last name,
Failed because those men weren’t meant to be part of my future,
I needed a forever last name,
I needed a man who’ll stand by me in the future,
A man who’ll love to give me his last name.
Eventually I found that perfect last name,
A name that doesn’t rhyme like my father’s last name,
I last name that isn’t unique like my father’s last name,
A last name that’s a popular last name,
Most of all, it’s a last name that I love attaching to my first name.
It’s also a last name that has changed my future,
I feel the strength in that last name,
There’s strength because I finally see happiness in my future.
There is strength because I don’t ever feel lonely with that last name,
Most of all, there’s strength because my husband is part of my future,
