The Better Gems

What's 
better 
than gold?
A heart of 
gold and 
any 
golden 
rule
Thus 
donot 
over the 
mined 
thing drool.

What's 
better 
than 
pearls?
Any pearls 
of wisdom
grant the 
oyster 
some 
freedom!

What's 
better 
than 
diamonds
Supernovas 
that dazzle 
like 
them
So don't 
you fret if 
you can't 
afford
the earthly 
underground 
gem.

What's 
better 
than 
rubies?
Crimson 
roses and 
rosy lips
I do, and 
maybe 
you too
already 
have them!

What's 
better 
than 
emeralds?
Feline eyes 
glowing in 
the dark.
Ah Lord! 
That 
fluorescent 
spark!

What's 
better 
than silver?
The hope 
that every 
cloud has 
a silver 
lining
Even 
miners 
they don't 
enjoy the 
mining.

What's better than amber?
Amber eyes shining like embers.
In God's design variety of 
eyeball shades
Ah the licorice eyed maidens 
and maids!

And whether it be
zircon or amethyst
Sapphire or lapis lazuli
Agate, opal or tanzanite
what tis far better
than all these gems put 
together
is anyone known as 'a gem of 
a person'.
For instance it's upto you
to transcend flesh and blood
and be a guiding star
for the transient travellers that 
we are.

    The gems inside our souls should shine much brighter than the ones' money can buy. A very thoughtful gem of a poem :)

    what a delightful idea you created, giving us things to appreciate through the color stone they resemble!
