i will not despise her

I will not despise her
no matter what you say.
She is lovely, her heart
what he holds
in his hands,
Her voice a song he created,
every word a note
he loves to hear.
She is a masterpiece–
exquisite, incomparable,
indestructible fragile-strong.
He calls her Pure,
his True One,
and she cannot be
no matter what you say.
So watch this
as she stands,
listening, heeding
his calling her name.
