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  
Heavenly supernovas  
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.
