The gems are great but nature has better gems also created by God
|What's better than gold?
A heart of gold and a golden rule
So lets not over the mined thing drool.
What's better than pearls?
Any pearls of wisdom
to grant the oyster some freedom!
What's better than diamonds?
Supernovas that dazzle like them
So don't fret if you can't afford the earthbound gem.
What's better than rubies?
Roses and lips carmine like them
Perhaps you and I already have them.
What's better than silver?
The thought that every cloud has a silver lining!
For miners they don't enjoy mining.
What's better than amber?
Amber eyes in God's variety of eyeball shades!
What's better than emerald?
Feline eyes glowing in the dark.
Ah Lord! That fluorescent green spark!
And then, whether it be zircon, or amethyst
sapphire or lapis lazuli
agate, opal or tanzanite.,
what tis even far better
than all these gems put together
is anyone known as a
'gem of a person'.
Now it's up to us
to go beyond our flesh and blood
and be a guiding star.!
For the transient travellers we all are.
The dust that man is famous for being created from
might be stardust after all.
