The Jewel

A gift given at the first sign of life
Brings about joy, brings about great strife

Given to me as it would to any other,
The ability to produce another.

No appreciation,
Temptations to destroy this beautiful creation
Absolutely no dedication to this innovation

Losing sight of this innate beauty
Nothing but shame upon you for losing this booty*

The jewel, the ability to procreate a new rule

Different from my peers
Refusing to lose sight
This beautiful gift that emits my angelic light

Without this angelic light I have lost my sight
Becoming a statistic, putting my self at risk
Missed, opportunities that were once open to the endless abyss

The jewel, the ability to procreate a new rule

I have no plans to lose my angelic light.
When the time is right, I shall lay down my fighting knight
this shall only happen on my wedding night.

My jewel, my ability to procreate a new rule

*booty: goods or money obtained illegally

Your beautifully crafted poem brought tears to my eyes. I love the metaphorical meaning of it. It is pretty deep--- our virginity is indeed our jewel!
