Do You Qualify?

Hello dear reader, some months ago, my boss at work shared this piece with me.

I thought to share…Enjoy!




Do you qualify to be the man I need you to be?

Will you be able to recognise the things you need to see?

Will you be able to understand, that I’m a good woman and in my life I need a good man

Do you qualify?


Do you qualify to fertilize my unproduced seeds?

Can you put me in my place if you see I am slipping?

Can you talk to me, wholeheartedly, not constantly tripping?

Do you qualify?


Do you qualify to be called all mine?

Can you leave the other women and temptations behind?

Can you come to me with your problems and not wait until it is too late?

Can you stand up and admit if you made a mistake?

Do you qualify?


Do you qualify to be the honest ebony man I would want you to be?

Would you be able to look me in my eyes and admit your feelings to me?

Could you take me in your arms and make love to me all night long?

Can you be sensitive and still be strong?

Do you qualify?


Do you qualify to be my friend as well as my love?

Can you put our love before any other?

Can you cherish me as if I were diamond and gold?

Can you make me feel like I’m the last woman you’ll ever hold?

Do you qualify?


Do you qualify to be called a good man?

If I have doubts can you reassure me and understand?

Can your love intoxicate me as if I were high?

To be in my life I need to know

Do you qualify?




Can I fulfil your needs and become the man you need me to be?

My sister, are you prepared for what you’ve asked for?

Can you handle the responsibility?

Can you accept that, by God, I am the chosen one, the authority, the comforter and the head?

Will you submit and willingly follow my path?

Or will you fight with me instead?

Do I qualify?


If I am your king, will you treat me as such?

Will I get the best of your beauty and poise?

Or will I be subjected to an appearance, neglected, and checked with some serious noise

When I talk, will you listen?

I mean wholeheartedly and feel me?

Or will you rush me just to make your point too?

Do I qualify?


Can I be the man at all times?

Even when it hurts?

Or is it when it is convenient for you?

Can you love me for me?

If I don’t send you flowers the day your co worker received some, will you know that I love you still?

Or will my good name be uttered along with those other doggish brothers?

Do I qualify?


Will you question if my commitment is real?

Will you be patient and teach me to understand you, and allow my knowledge of your needs to grow?

Or will you shut me out when I ask, ‘Baby what’s wrong?’

Or will you respond with “Well, a REAL man would know”

Do I qualify?


When we first met, what was it that caught your eye?

Was it my mind, my heart , my personality?

Or was it my suit or my job?

Or do you love what I drive, instead of what’s driving me?

Do I qualify?


Yes I can and I will make love to you from midnight to the dawning of the sun

But if I tell you, I’m tired, will you trust that I’m sincere or believe that there must be another one?

My sister, I love you and my heart can be yours

No woman can lead me astray

But like you, I have needs

So I beg you, please in this love thing, meet me half way.


In life’s tough times, I will hold you

In the rough times, I will hold you

Your simplest wish will be my command

My life is yours if need be


Yes you can fully bleed me and when hell comes, in your place, I will stand


A good relationship is a powerful institution that must be built on a foundation of two

So to answer your question




do you qualify 1

  1. O wow! I’m in love, with Mr qualified, and o yes, I do qualify. I am a-loving this piece waaaaaay too much darling Eloho 🙂

  2. love! Love! Love!
    A lot of times, we think a good relationship is dependent on finding a good partner. But that’s never it. You need to work on yourself as well.
    This just captured that perfectly.
    Thank you for sharing with us

  3. Ah-mazing piece! I think that most times we ladies are so busy looking for the “perfect” man that we forget to become the “perfect” woman ourselves. I especially relate to the part that talks about meeting him halfway – that to me sums it all up! Powerful message Sis, may God help us all!

  4. Great, balanced post. It’s not only about the other person.. It’s about me too! Sometimes I honestly wonder if I am qualified and then I ask God for grace to qualify me 🙂

    1. Thanks dear Ayo, it is about me too. For every quality we put down on our list, we must ask if we are qualified to make that kind of person’s list too.

  5. Really nice poetry .
    As I read , I waltzed and danced to the tune of the lyrics.
    I’m left with a giddy feeling, the kind of feeling you have when someone sends u a gift, a really lovely gift.
    I can’t add anything to the writers words .
    Even married people need to be reminded sometimes of their vows.
    I qualify!

    1. Awww….so nice to know. I can imagine you waltzing to the music in your heart. 🙂
      God help us all, AMEN!!!

  6. Em Eloho, ‘make love to you all night long’? Because of what? I should not sleep?

    Hehehe…you know me I must see that part.

    The man sounds too much like Mr Kiah. 🙁

    1. Ha ha ha Kiah, I’m not surprised that you responded to that line. Wow! If it sounds like Mr. Kiah, I love Mr. Kiah. 🙂

  7. Food for thought.
    I read it from my blackberry device
    Hmmm! Being comparable in strengths and working on your weaknesses
    matters so much
    Heading in the same direction in beliefs and visions and goals is key
    Do you qualify?

    1. Yes o! We can like love things, only speaks of our godlike character, we were created to be relational…. The question is still hanging though, to your tents o Israel, every man/woman for themselves. Do I qualify? 🙂

    1. Ha ha ha ha. You are welcome Seun, it’s for each one to wash his/her plate right? I’m glad that reading it spoke to you. 🙂

  8. this is wonderful!! Very thought provoking…after all love is a two way street, a combined effort 🙂 I can only hope that more people see it this way and test themselves to see whether they qualify and correct what needs to be corrected before someone else has to ask as an ultimatum 🙂

    1. Thank you for reading Tosin. It actually is food for thought for everyone. Do I qualify?
