5 Girls

Updated on November 9, 2015

Life changing.

having a family is without doubt the best decision I ever made.all my decisions up till them came close to death at was time to change.

Special people


Past 21 years I've been truly blessed
I have 5 beautiful girls,it's been an ongoing test
From babies,to toddlers,then in to teens
They're all gorgeous,must be the genes.
Each individual,complex and mad
Touched by genius,taxing just a tad.
They set me on a straighter road.
From being a hood to my now humble abode
I was a bad lost person,who was heading downhill
I think of it now,gives me a chill.
They kept me busy,all of the time
My life changed from bad to happily fine.
I couldn't be happier,bringing up the kids
Instead of watching my life go down the skids.
I hope I've been a trusting Dad
I take it serious,not just a fad.
I hope I'm the guy,they can trust with anything
I love them all,it is a true blessing.
I try to be tough,and not be too soft
I remember the days I held them aloft
I don't think I've been happier,they make me who I am
I've lived a true life,mostly it's been calm.
They have their moments,it's not all plain sailing
I deal with the problems,I just try not failing.
Wouldn't change a thing,they rely on me so much
When I see third faces,my heart they do touch.
I dread the day,they all leave the roost
I hope for many visits,give my heart a boost.


These are my five girls,special doesn't even start to describe them.they're infuriating,amazing,exacerbating,loving,kind,honest,crazy.the words could go on.



Family should be treasured,all too often they pass and you have nothing but regrets.if I had passed relatives times again,I would have no regrets.


only five women could fire you through so many emotions in the one day.they put you on a high one moment,then on the next breath your stressed out to hell.thats why I wouldn't change it for the world.



each of them has a personality that is chalk and cheese with the is more caring than the other,one produces genuinely sweet moments if one of their sisters is upset.they defend each other with so much intent it makes you proud to watch every minute of their journey to adult hood.

Dads Taxi Service.

I am the unpaid driver of the house like my wife is too.I've been to some strange places at the oddest of hours to pick them up.they're safety is paramount to us,I literally take them everywhere to ensure they're safe wherever the go.

Parental instinct.

i used to watch my mum defending our family in the street all the time.i often wondered why she got so emotional,now im a Dad I totally understand why she was that way.nothing fires up emotions more than kids.

      Very nice poem about your girls i am happy that you're a PROUD dad i myself feel proud of you because so many dad's doesn't feel like that because they rode out when their baby mama/ wife was pregnant.

      May God bless you and your girls and save you all.
