I'm convinced; There's no doubt,
I know who I am.
Some may say I'm a myth, or an anomaly;
But I call myself a "Good Man
When a woman needs to be loved,
The prototype of her search is me.
When a lesser man breaks her heart,
I am who he claims to be.
For I am the best kept secret;
A gift that some women may never know.
But to a Good Woman, I am a gem;
And only to her will my radiance show.
In her love lies my strength,
And my strength fulfills her needs.
In my arms, she is protected;
And with my heart she is complete.
I am so convinced and there's no doubt.
I know exactly who I am.
For those who will ever inquire about me,
Here stands a Good Man
Written By: Thomas McCoy"Heard It Before"
She told me that she's been hurt too much,
To ever love again.
Heart broken so many times,
That she doubts it will ever mend.
She said that she has been deceived so much,
That all she know are lies.
Then with a sob she said,
"Crying is the primary use for my eyes."
As I sat across from her,
Gazing into her eyes through the tears.
I then realized that she wanted to be loved,
Just couldn't get past her fears.
That very instant, I wanted to save her, to love her,
Show her there is a better way.
Let her see that I'm a grown man,
Who has out grew the games little boys play.
I then tell her to take a chance with me,
Explaining how I could love her and so much more.
With tear-filled eyes she said to me,"I've heard that before."

I wrote this poem to because too often I've heard females say that they have been hurt a lot. Some even go as far as to say that they have never had a good relationship. These things happen--but the problem is these women may begin to think that there aren't any good men out there... And even worst, they may miss out on good men because they expect them to be just like their past men. This only makes it harder for the good man to convince a female that his intentions are good and genuine. On one hand, he has to distinguish himself from the imposters who pretend to be what a good man takes pride in being... And on the other hand, he has to try to mend the heart of a female who has been played, used, deceived, and taken for granted so much that she honestly believes that no man will ever truly love her. And what's crazy about that situation is only a good man will be able to accomplish that feat. So in short women, us good men are still out here--I'm just sorry you have to sift through all the imposters to find one...
