Come let us hail the virgins
and their lives of purity.
For innocence and fear of God
has surely set them free.

Or let us hail the virgins
who have never known the touch
of lust or passion, and who
never cared to want for such.

And let us hail those virgins
who were cast out by their peers
for refusing to be ruled
by popularity and fears.

And hail, just once, those virgins
who don't care for one night stands,
or rendez-vous's with godknows-who,
-some unknown casual man.

Hail the unsung purity
whose essence you could only find
in beings of such rarity
whose lives are their design.

"Knowing someone is good.
Knowing yourslef is wise.
Knowing God is blessed."

I agree with Sandie. You are an individual and precious in all that you are. Stay true to yourself and you become all the more unique and special...

Beautiful poem. Thank you for being brave enough to share this...
