Virgin caught in devils dance
begotten by his smile
Her values and her morals
shall stand against his force
She always claimed how strong she was
No man could break her down
But one look into his deep brown eyes
her morals began to crumble
With every single solemn touch
her faith in values began to fall
He kissed her gently on her head
she backed away in fear
"Please, stand back don't you understand
this isn't what I want"
I promised not to break down and give myself away
Now I stand here in front of you
body quivering in fear
please don't hate me my dear love
I can't let myself go
I can't let everyone down because honestly I swore
to take care of myself and never let it go
Until the day when you say
those 3 honored words to me

I promise that I love you dear
but that simply will not suffice
I can not be with you now
because my angels will cry
to the heavens above
if my values do not hold up
But as many times as you have said to me
"If you love me.." perhaps just this once
you should listen too
If you love me let me do
what is meant for me to do
Let me hold my values close to my heart
for I will not let them go
No matter how close I dance to the devil
My virginity will not go!

I am glad that you are sticking to your values, if he really loves you them he will understand. It seems these that most people are in a rush to lose their virginity. It is nice to see someone who wants their first time to be a special occasion. I really enjoyed your poem.

Douglas Adams.

Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky

"You have your very own number
They dress your cage in its nature
Once you roared now you just grunt lame
Pace around pathetic pound games

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

They drag sticks along your walls
Harvest your ovaries dead mothers crawl
Here comes warden, Christ, temple, elder
Environment not yours you see through it all

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

Here chewing your tail is joy"

I agree totally with the morals you describe in your poem....anyway, love is more than sex isn't it?

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

Thank you both for your kind comments.  Although many people often commend virgins it's sometimes looked down upon as well.  I appreciate the praise.  And yes love is more than sex.  Good luck in your next writings and thank you for reading mine.

Hi Angelwings,

I cannot tell you how much I need to show this to my seventeen year old who think that something is wrong with her because she is still a vergin and of yet not had a boy friend, everyone around her is doing it so should she but sometimes somethings might be better if you wait, funny thing is she is waiting because of values she has placed on herself and wants to make the right choices, but life, peer preasure and wanting to fit in with the in thing can have a big factor in what choices you make. Very good advice and much courage for sharing it with the world, thank you so much.

Love Cerenity

No thank you Cerenity~
  I wrote this poem for that simple reason.  I just graduated high school and I'm turning 18 in a couple of months.  This poem is written about my last boyfriend, my supposed first love.  I have always planned on waiting until the perfect time.  But you know sometimes it is hard not to.  The thing that I found the most assuring was that my friends began respecting me for it.  Although I may be one of a few people who seem to be withholding from sleeping with someone it is often the most wonderful thing for someone to find out.  I broke up with this "love" of mine because he couldn't handle it.  I just want you to tell your daughter how wonderful she truly is and how proud she should be for herself.  It isn't an easy task to do and many times people will tease her about it, but it's more important to be true to yourself than anyone else!  Congradulations are in order for your daughter and thank you for reading my poem.  I hope you do share it with your daughter and tell her to feel free to e-mail me I'd love to talk with her.  Thank you and good luck in your writings

Angel, this should be posted on every streetpost across the continent.  The values and morals in today's world seem to get lost in the rush of feelings and needs. Yet, standing tall and holding onto such precious a gift is the greatest treasure one may give to oneself and their future beloved when two hearts say their vows of i do's amongst family and friends.
Thank you for sharing this poem.

AngelWings~

I'm pleased to see so many of the youth of today, young men and women alike, realizing that it's okay to stand up for your morals and 'choose' to wait.

Wonderful post and wonderful advice to other young people.  Hearing it from a peer will go a long, long way in affirming that abstinence is a choice.

*Lil' Lizzie~
YES ! Much, much more.
