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,
