Partner Over Prize

To my son or other sons;
allow me to hold your ear.
This will be a 'man to man'
It's my plan to make this clear.
A real problem with depth perception
is common to your eyes.
When you look into a woman
you want a partner, not a prize.

This is about investment strategy,
Not a laborious lecture.
It’s obviously apparent that we overly admire
certain things, like architecture.
Looks are tempting, yet oh so empty.
This advice you need to take.
Because Yoga pants and the twerking dance
does not a good woman make.

Lack of vision press your emotions
to quickly deceive your heart.
And once reality becomes way more real,
it can quickly fall apart.
A true partner is always beautiful
there's no deceit and no disguise
Truth be told, there are some women
looking to be just a prize.

You want a girl who can roll up her sleeves
and help with sweaty work.
And she can 'girl up' for a night on the town,
that's an enjoyable perk.
The first order of business should be about substance:
Character and intellect.
Understanding the Divine order of the home;
an encouraging display of respect.

You want girl who can aid in your growth
a perspective that pursues the long view
And if she does absolutely none of these things,
is she really made for you?
So many end up in tippy toe mode
or the frustration of eventual demise
'Relationship' implies health and growth for both
to what benefit is winning that prize?

This is not only about finding the right one
there's a man that you need to be.
Look deep inside, let go of your pride
and give effort to inquiry.
Direction and strength incite admiration
and are not to be despised.
With them you'll come to know the difference
between appreciation or idolizing a prize.

Life is much more than look what I got,
or see what I'm about to get.
Happiness disappears, but joy perseveres
without depth perception regret.
Plant your feet firmly and prepare your heart
to not be compelled by your eyes
Just remember, When you look into a woman
you want a partner first, not a prize.

Here's The Word:

Proverbs 31:10 An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels. 11 The heart of her husband trusts in her, And he will have no lack of gain. 12 She does him good and not evil All the days of her life.

In Him,
