Once a married thing to do
now a reputation to pursue
a few soft words
an experiment with the "bees and birds"
Now a common activity
forgetting the beliefs of the son in the nativity
Pressure on you to do wrong
you think you have to go along
Once virginity is out of sight
the relationship ends with a fight
hearts are broken
from little words that were spoken
rumors spread from one to another
eventually you must face your mother
she says shes disappointed
now you're not sure where your life is pointed
A little prayer is said
you cry a little as you bow your head
after God says he will forgive
you must decide which way you will live.

That is beautiful in a sad way. I love how the matter-of fact-ness hints at the emotion

This is really well written, but I disagree. I think  sex  outside of marriage is right for some people, and not for others. Then again I am not a Christian so I don't have a religion telling me what my views on  sex  are. I think as long as the teens know what they are getting into, and know the risks, and use protection, it is okay. I really think for some people the right time is not marriage, although it is very cool that you know what you think of it, and stay with your beliefs. Great writing!
