AGood Man Is Hard To Find
AGood Man Is Hard To Findis a love poem written by Jody Bixia He. The persona is complainantwoman or lady who had intimate feelings for a guy. The poem iswritten by a school going character therefore setting is around aschool. The poem begins with the woman liked the guy who nevernoticed it. It goes further to describe how they helped each otherdoing assignments together, going for picnics, and sometimes the mancould buy her precious gifts and presents. She was blinded by thekind of love she received but never recognized that Right Man Is HardTo Find. She later came to terms with realities when the guy and hismother denying that they never loved each other before.
Myinspiration to this poem is embedded in the fact that it applies tothe current state of relationships. Committed gentlemen are rare tofind, men who will treat a lady with dignity, respect, protect herwith a long relationship that would lead to marriage. There are somecrimes committed by men to women that make me feel ashamed. Forinstance, men who abuse their ladies physically impregnate girls butdenies responsibility. For sure, it is prudent and wise to showsympathy to women who have undergone these situations but would urgea change in the generalization of judgments unto every man.
Thepoet employed useful artistic devices to spice the flow of themessage. For example, the use of simile ‘feelings as bitter aslime’ used to express how mad the persona was use of dramaticmonolog- persona in talking to herself. Imagery “when I was feelingblue’ to imply hard times.
