Do It For Yourself - Poem by Ana Monnar

Do you know what I loved about
your dad so much – is that he tried
so decisively to please me
before I met him, he was not
at all like that; that’s what I kept
hearing… selfish and self-centered
forever and a day he was
until one day he fell in love
He himself decided to change
You need to do it for yourself
No one changes for anyone
That is why by no means imposed
On each other without end
Never tried to change each other
Thank God that change was truly due
Otherwise what would have happened
To both our lives and children’s, too
