Dear Ladies [Poem]

March 24, 2017

Dear ladies, I wrote this poem on behalf of the men of our generation…

 

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child, I reasoned as a child but when I became a man I put away childish things when I became a man I realized the damage I did when I was a child and for that I am sorry.

 

For all those times that we led you on and broke your heart

We lied about our motives because they were impure from the start

for all those times that you trusted us and we broke your trust

for all those times that you loved us but all we had for you was lust…

on behalf of the men of our generation, I have to say I am sorry.

 

For all those times, we neglected you or made you feel insecure

And all heartaches and pain that we made you endure

for all those times that all we noticed about you was your looks and your body

and failed to realize your character, your value, and you're worth and personality

on behalf of the men of our generation, I have to say I am sorry.

 

For all those times, we addressed you as a little girl instead of as a queen

For all the broken promises and saying things we didn’t really mean

Instead of taking you seriously, we turned it into a game

Instead of bringing you joy, we were the cause of your pain

on behalf of the men of our generation, I have to say I am sorry.

 

I want you to know that we are still a work in progress.

God is still working on us and he is nowhere near done, it's a long process.

And we are learning to become more like the image of his son and he’s teaching us how to love

So, that your attention and affection is something we'll be worthy of

 

I'm sorry you met us when we were boys

You see, boys play so in return, we treated you like toys

 

Please don’t let the way we’ve treated you make you feel or think any less of yourselves

Because You are beautiful and worthy of love

Divinely created by God above

You are worth more than you could imagine

More than your weight, your height, your style, your fashion

You are worth more than the things you wear

Worth more than your make-up or the style of your hair

You are worth more than the pain you bear

My sisters, you are precious and you are rare

It’s hard to define you in just a couple of bars

But you are the daughters of the one who made the stars

Of all of God’s creations, you surpass them all by far

The question is, do you know who you are?

You are loved more than you will ever know

By a loving savior that’s not going to let you go

Whatever you think you’re worth, you’re worth much more

Cause in the eyes of God, you are worth dying for

And when you stay prayed up you’ll never fall prey

Plus you are beautiful in your own unique way

So be confident and know what your worth is

Because once you know your worth, no one can ever make you worthless.
