A Fatherís Loving Plea
Poetry by Lance Landall

My precious darling daughter, there is much that I need to say Regarding many dangers that could soon see you led astray. But there is one important thing, that now, I wish to mention, And if happiness you want, please give this your full attention.

This world is not the way it was, not that it has been fault-free, But now, because it has worsened, much more wrong about youíll see. Some things can look attractive that in actual fact just hide That which given half a chance could soon see you taken for a ride.

And such it is with certain men, whoíll try to ply oneís daughter With some nice gift and hollow words, as they pretend to court her. Yes, it takes a man to know one, thus the need to say to you, That many a manís intentions arenít honourable or true.

Yes, so many steps are taken by some men who prise consent, That in time will soon prove to you that they were not Heaven-sent. And though they will try and fool you that you donít have need for fear, An error here could soon see these wise words ringing in your ear.

Any man whoíll truly love you, will never want to hurt you, Thus, thereíll be no selfish focus in the things heíll say and do. However, it can happen, that like this a suitor will seem, When in fact heís just fooling you, as that is how some men scheme.

If a man isn't genuine, caution here should find that out, For in such matters of the heart, you cannot afford a doubt. So many inexperienced and caught up in emotions Have suffered miserably due to unsound young devotions.

Thus, men who focus on the body will not be right for you, So watch your presentation lest you get a man that youíll rue. Theyíll treat you like an object, though could you wonder that they do Should sexual titillation be written all over you?

This world is so obsessed with sex, and we shouldn't be surprised, Given that self-gratification appears to be more prized. And no wonder many men today with what they're being fed, When it comes down to women, now think more just in terms of bed.

A man should love you for yourself, and should seek just you to please, But this, of course, is something that only the right man sees. A permanent relationship should be built on solid ground, And as this is so pivotal, donít marry one who plays around.

For many itís just like shopping ó they will try and then discard, Unconcerned their philandering can hit some (rejected) hard. And sadly, many women too, also play this foolish game, Compounding such behaviour, and thus sharing the shame and blame.

Some men may be good at heart, but sexually addicted; Though not meaning harm to you, it can surely be predicted. And bear in mind that any child that might grow up like that dad, Could also bring you much sadness, and just to your problems add.

All these things here, are said in love, and are a fatherís duty, So that you might avoid a man whoíll rob your life of beauty. Thus, save yourself for just one man, whose love youíll always treasure Because of its unselfishness that does not weigh or measure.
