Will I ever find true love
and discover what it's like
to know you've found the one
without ever having sex?

Will I ever be able to discover
the secrets behind the difference
of the popular "having sex"
and the classical "making love?"

Will I ever be able to listen
to a friend describe a sexual relationship
without feeling sorry for their loss
and my own impatience?

Will I ever learn to not feel bad
for the girl who wears an abstinence ring
that reads "true love waits", but she
chose not to discover that for herself?

Will I ever learn the reason why
i feel so left out when my peers talk
about sex and their partners, yet so
disgusted at the same time?

When will the day come
when I am able to give myself to my soul mate,
mind, body and soul..so that I can say
"It was worth the wait"?

The author's comments:
Many teens, both Christian and non Christian alike, are faced with many obsticals when it comes to sticking with what they believe in. Abstinance is a precious decision, but media makes it seem like a joke. I believe when I find The One, it will be worth the wait. But, when will that be?
