Found Words – A Poem?

I wrote a poem from words that came from a jewelry catalog: cut, bend, wrap, bring, create, choose, hold, release, know, abrade, spiral, materials, gems, mountain, wires, lifetime, pieces, generations, crystal, pendant, ruby, silk, faceted

The gems of a lifetime are created not just within mountains but wherever we go.
We bring with us the materials to capture joy.
We bend and cut golden spirals and wrap them around rubies.
We can choose to hold them or release them,
and it is our responsibility to prevent the chains
of our crystal pendants from knotting and the silk from abrading.
If we are careful, we can pass faceted heirlooms to generations unborn.
