The Jewel Everyone Has

                            .
                           A
                       heart
                   Is a jewel;
                  Expensive:
              a lifetime of work
          is needed to attain one.
   It is the rarest of all the jewels:
 Not just any heart you find is right.
It is strong, but weak on the inside.
  A girl's greatest gift; the greatest
    of treasures--Stored in a safe
       made of vulnerable glass,
           No alarms to signal or
              warn of a break in.
                It can be stolen
                  Sometimes it
                       is forever
                           Gone
                               .

      

The End
