You are a diamond.
Don’t ever forget that!
You are a fabulous gem
with beauty that stirs me
and those who see within.
Originally a lump of coal,
You were riddled with faults,
confused like each one of us.
Making choices as you grew,
You made your way,
Learning what hurt you or hurt others.
Under layers of earth that ugly coal
Was squeezed and went through tremendous heat
and became a beautiful diamond.
You are like that lump of coal
The demands of society and life
combined to put you under pressure and heat
giving you experiences and wisdom
To turn you into the diamond you are.
When you enter a room the lights of your heart
sparkle and shine,
making heads turn and hearts flutter.
you are the most precious type of gem known,
a diamond forevermore.
