A couple of inspiring poems

I am a Gift

I am a gift. I know that I am special.
Whoever receives me will be pleasantly surprised.
I have never been opened. I am an extremely expensive
gift. My value increases with age. Gifts this good are hard to come by.
Whoever receives me will be pleasantly surprised.
I have never been opened. I am the type of gift that many destroy, like the board games
that everyone wants to play, with their little pieces, with their constant usage by so many people, their changing into so many hands.
So many of their pieces get lost along the way, the board game begins to fall apart.
They age so quickly, but not me; I have never been opened.
I am a gift that will not be opened until I am sure that the person I belong to will not trade me like cards- until I know that the person I
belong to will take care of me, because I am fragile- that the person I belong to will love me, because I am special.
Treasure me, because I am rare, I am a virgin.

No One Ever Told Me

No one ever told me that I could wait.
Fifteen with big dreams, but now... it's too late.

I gave away the most precious gift I ever had;
And even though it was sometime ago,
In my heart I still feel sad.

I thought I had to!...
Because I didn't want to risk losing you.

You said it was me and you against the world;
Now I am left alone, rasing our baby girl.

No one ever told me that I could wait.
Fifteen with big dreams... is it really too late?

From this point on I choose to respect myself.
I will not lend my body to be used by no one else!

I choose to abstain until marriage;
I am tired of being hurt and left with the emotional baggage.

No one ever told me that I could wait.
Fifteen with big dreams... It's not too late!

No one ever told me...
But now, I'm telling you.
