#TBT = Throwback Thursday! — “GOOD GIRL”

“GOOD GIRL”

I’m a “good girl” so I’ll probably never have a man
Because most men don’t understand
That I’m trying to live by God’s plan
I know I’m a Christian and I’m not supposed to cuss
But most men don’t want a “good girl” the want a woman they can Fff…
(Well you know what I’m saying)
So for that reason men don’t be feeling me
They don’t comprehend my choice of celibacy
And my deciding to live by 1st Corinthians chapter 6 verse 18
“Flee fornication” is how that verse starts
So now some men say that my choice is breaking their hearts
But that I doubt. I don’t have that clout.
All I know is the values I must be about.
The goal of my existence is to be godly
Honoring the Father by purity in my body
So I walk in this conviction
Happy in my restriction
Choosing no friction
Trying my best and never doing the least
And to those who still don’t get me I just wish you Peace.

Still on the theme of celibacy and virtue. At this point I had gone about a year without intercourse (I had dated someone but we didn’t have sex). I know it is a subject that very few people relate to in this day and age, but for me at the time poetry was how I expressed emotion and how I dealt with whatever was in my life and/or on my mind at the time.
