The better Gems
What's better than gold?
A heart of gold and any golden rule
Thus do not over the mined thing drool.
What's better than pearls?
Any shining pearls of wisdom
grant the oyster respite's freedom!
What's better than diamonds
and stars that dazzle like them
So don't you fret if you can't afford
the earthly underground gem.
What's better than rubies?
Crimson roses and rosy lips
I do and maybe you too already have them!
What's better than emeralds?
Feline eyes glowing in the dark.
Ah Lord! That fluorescent emerald spark!
What's better than silver?
The hope that every cloud has a silver lining
Even miners they don't enjoy the mining.
It takes effort crafting and polishing a poem.
What's better than amber?
Amber eyes shining like embers.
In God's fine variety of iris shades
Ah, and the licorice eyed maidens and maids!
And whether it be zircon or amethyst
Sapphire or lapis lazuli
Agate, opal or tanzanite
what tis far better
than all these gems put together
is anyone known as 'a gem of a person'.
For instance it's up to you to transcend flesh and blood
and be a guiding star
for the transient travellers that we are.
Let the dust that man is famously created from
be upgraded to stardust by science
and by becoming a shining star in God's eyes.
And if you are kind, you are a gem of a person
in the view of the Creator.
