To All The Men I'Ve Loved Before - Poem by Morney Wilson

To all the men I’ve loved before,
and to those I could never love.
I have but one thing to say to you -
Enough is enough is enough!

I am but twenty years of age
and should be full of joys,
but I have met so many men
that behave like little boys.

I thought there were some nice men,
but I realise I’ve been had.
There are two different types of men,
but both are just as bad.

One type of man says you’re so fine
and he wants to be with you.
Well, that is true at the time,
but he’ll be gone in a month or two.

The other type of man is hurt
by some affair that’s in his past.
He’ll tell you you’re a goddess
and that this time, the love will last.

But though his intentions are good
and you know you’re not being used,
soon he’ll start to have his doubts
and tell you he feels confused.

Of course there is another type
of man that we all know.
He says he’s interested in your mind,
but his thoughts lie somewhere below.

He’ll say he wants to make love to you
and you’ll shiver with thrilled delight.
But in an hour or so he flings on his clothes
and goes off into the anonymous night.

Men think that they’re extremely cool
and big and mean and hard.
Watch out when you meet a man -
Always be on your guard.

So when you’re with a man who’s bad
and your tears are always raining,
remember, he’s not worth the pain –
You’re better off abstaining!
