The Struggle Of Being Single

While I am not a big fan of this genre of performance poetry - this one is absolutely amazing. A young woman's honest struggle with being single and doing God's will.
One part that I love:
I will no longer date, socialize or communicate with carbon copies of you
To appease my boredom or to quench my thirstiness I have for attention
And short-lived compliments from ‘sorta kindas’.
You know…. He ‘sort kinda’ right, but ‘sorta kinda’ wrong?
His first name LUKE,
His last name WARM.

But To My Father, My Father who has known me before
was birthed into this Earth,
Only if you should see fit, I desire your will above mine
so even if you call me to a life of single-ness
My heart is content with you the one who has sinned
You are the greatest love story ever told
The greatest love ever known, you are forever my judge
and I'm forever your witness
and I pray that Im always found on a mission about my
Fathers business

I will always be Yours, and I will always wait for You Lord
more than the watchmen wait for the morning
more than the watchmen wait for the morning
I will wait.
