Single: The Art of Being Satisfied, Fulfilled and Independent
Single: The Art of Being Satisfied, Fulfilled and Independent

Single is . . .

. . . not a condition to be cured . . . it's just as natural as being part of a couple. Its wisdom is contagious. Its message is powerful.

. . . a sometimes funny, sometimes touching, and always uplifting collection of true-life experiences and practical wisdom that helps readers celebrate their single status.

. . . a one-of-a-kind self-help book that speaks a universal language to single women everywhere.

Single is about upholding the most enduring relationship of all: the one we have with.


Being alone, I have right to choose

to be in a commitment or run loose

I have hang ups like a noose

Nurse rhymes of it as Mother Goose

I thought third time was the charm

to have a good lady on my arm

Been in three relationships of my life

They didn't amount to a wife

Going through it, working out kinks

Make connections to draw love links

Same ole games as an eye blinks

Too many worries, not much winks

For now, I'll ride it solo

Broken record played by a cello

Violins to fall over hills again

Chances too slim to begin

Your exes are drug dealers

Don't judge me because I'm realer

I'm not considered a ladies' man

Though, female friends are part of plan

Explore all my options in this field

Just like women, I keep up a shield

I put no person in any category

Process of elimination for dating story

Can I say, once upon OUR time has begun

Desire from you the sky, moon to sun

Takes a special girl to be my bun

I'm young, gifted and god of fun

Cut everyone, what makes you the ONE

Forget talk, what have you done

How will I stay with you over all or none

or will I be singing, oh she's gone

You want king, are you queen material

Could you hold me down as times get critical

My feelings are scars seen on tissues

I come with small demons of issues

Shake them off, I'm far from perfect fit

Why do you qualify as a keeper, legit

Should I bring you home and then to pulpit

Are you gonna give me hell, straight bullshit

Cook, clean and followed of hot great sex

Would you see those things as complex

Better yet, bless me with what looks like us

My own, step kids or both from unanimous

decision to be clan of babies we're inviting

Support you as you'll do my career of writing

After many years, we keep our flame igniting

Us happy forever, does it sound exciting
