Ever Changing Man - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

I was told when i was young
men liked women who liked sex
because they were easy
but they never married them

and then i saw my father cheat
on my mother and then cheat on
the woman he cheated on her with
leaving me crushed and confused

when i grew up i read that
what men really sought was beauty
and then the writer dropped a bomb
saying unless she's too beautiful

the very beauiful woman is admired
and loved for the most part from afar
for the man is afraid of rejection
even when the door to her heart is ajar

    Great to hear this from the female viewpoint. So many times, when young, we boys would wonder: why is the best looking lass in the place, with the worst looking bloke? I think he'd read your poem first!
