The possessive adjective should be singular because the noun is singular. As with all adjectives, they must agree in number and gender with the noun that they modify.

The choices are:
tu - if talking to 1 familiar person
su - if talking to formal listener or listeners or any group in Latin America
Vuestra - if talking to a familiar group in Spain

tu puedes usar "debido a" o simplemente puedes decir "por"

I think for because you may also be able to use "a causa de" which literally translates to to the cause of or as a result of...I think this may work as well.

because= debido a
or else= si no
I think the last one sounds good the way you have it or instead of otra vez you could say de nuevo or nuevamente.
