Is it so wrong to want to remain single or a virgin for the rest of my life?

Questioning faces with raised eyebrows

Judging me

Condemning me.

.

Virginity is scarce

Promiscuity is rampant

And they act as if I’ve committed a heinous crime

An unforgivable sin.

.

They mock me

They want to put me to shame

Cast stones at me

All for what?

For standing my ground and not confirming to what they want.

.

But I will not back down

My resolve is strong

Let me be the odd one!

Let me be the rebel!

Let me be the outcast!

I will not conform to them.
