Society mocks
abstinence; but God detests
all fornicators.

God gives us sacred
purity; society
offers sex. Who's right?

there's truth to that, i agree. at the end of the day, it's your choice what how you live your life...as long as there's an equal understanding and mutual respect, it's okay... thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts.

thank you so much. it's something that a lot of teens think about at one point or another, even if we think we don't think about it.

I love that someone wrote this poem because it's exactly what I've been thinking. You stated it beautifully!

everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. the worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. [sylvia plath]

I live by "do as thou wilt as long as thou harm none," so, in my opinion, as long as what goes on in your bedroom isn't hurting anyone, it's okay in my book.

This is something I've been thinking about for so long but struggle to say to express to others. You are immensley talented for portraying this particular issue in such few words. I love it

true love is abstinence, which insures sex isn't all he/she wants.

This is a great way to show the double standard. I love the concept and your elegant word choice. Have you considered writing something similar as a diamond poem?

I like this. I feel that it's your choice on whether or not you want to have sex. You have to be smart for yourself, if it doesn't feel right don't do it.

Wish more people thought this way. It is a choice you have to make that is between you and God. Love it!
