Be The Diamond Within

It’s Poetry Wednesday and I’ll love to share this beautiful poem that was written by my friend, T.R. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. She’s such a gifted writer!

You sit there all alone

watching the world pass you by.

You sit there sighing.

Hands at your side.

Outside the wind is dancing.

Outside the world goes round.

But inside you are hurting.

Inside you wear a frown.

It’s okay to struggle.

It’s okay to cry.

It’s okay to have these feelings.

But it’s not okay to die.

There is love around you.

Yes, even while you hurt.

There is care to support you.

To show you what you’re worth.

You may feel like charcoal.

Burning into dust.

No one sees your value.

Your tears have become rust.

Truth is under pressure

that’s where value’s found.

Yes, your layers carry millions.

Listen, all around.

Diamonds don’t come easy.

Their hardship isn’t known.

But you and I, we know this,

and have since found our home.
