Family Heirloom

Shiny not losing their glow
Passed down
From generation to generation
Worn by different women
In different places
In different times
Across Oceans
Kept from prying eyes
Preserved from hands that steal
The family heirloom
Representing treasure
Showing our strength
Revealing our virtue
Establishing our identity
In a world who do not care
About who we are.
