A Jewel One Wishes To Keep
There is nothing more treasured,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
For any human being...
Than to be respected and treated,
As if a jewel one wishes to keep.
Instead of disregarded as a fad.
And passed over in time...
Like a useless commodity.
Leaving so many today to walk around,
Feeling worthless and sad.
With their heads held down.
