Poem: Rejecting the Impossible in Dating Relationships

by share


Does that word ring a bell?

When a guy says it’s impossible to satisfy a girl,


Or when a girl says it’s impossible for a guy to be different.



Why is it impossible for teens to be respectful in a relationship?

Why isn’t impossible, possible for a guy to know how to treat instead of beat a girl?



It’s not impossible to have a healthy relationship with an significant other.



Parents, it is possible for guys or girls to change — you may think it’s impossible for changing


If you break it down,

Impossible stands for I’m possible

Meaning I’m possible to have a healthy dating relationship

I’m possible to know how to treat a guy or girl

I’m possible and the example of working or being in a healthy relationship

I’m possible of dating the right guy or girl
