The Virgin

 

Yes, that's me.

I am in fact,

A virgin.

Why do you think

It’s a problem?

I’m proud to be.

I like the wait.

You can try,

Try to get me laid.

It won’t work,

I made up my mind.

But,

Everyday you try.

You tell me,

It will fix me.

Am I broken?

Broken because I’m

A Virgin?

It’s funny

When you cry.

Telling me how much

He hurt you.

How you gave him

Everything you could.

And he still doesn't

Love you.

But I’m broken,

Right?

Because I’m

The virgin

Maybe you should

Look.

Look again.

Because maybe,

I

The virgin,

Is not

The broken one.

But you are in fact,

The one who is

b r o k e n.

The one in pain.

Look again

Because

This virgin

Is doing just fine.

    Nicki, I totally support you in having the right to live your life in the way that you choose.
    You are very brave to air that choice here and i am sure that i am only the first of many here to support you in this. The values you mention are wholesome and respectable.
    Whilst writing i feel i must point out that i do not have religious beliefs on this subject i am purely motivated by acknowledging your rights as a free human being to live your life as you see fit so long as it harms no-one.

      Thank you for your support. I am "religious" but my reasons for wanting to wait are more than "the Bible says." I choose to find my own reasons for why I believe something or choose something. I do this because not everyone wants to hear "the Bible says." And honestly I don't like that answer either. Once again thank you for your support 😊
