The Jewel Within Your Hand


The Jewel Within Your Hand

I've gone down this road with you
Improved your attitude . . .
And stuck around
Even when you've been awful and rude
Are you ever gonna grow up
And see the jewel within your hand
For none of us has long to live
Or time to stand stuck in the sand
For the jewel is me you see
And my sparkle will not last long
Unless you grow up and show me that you can be strong
If you will just hold me for one moment
Open your eyes and see
I've been waiting here all along for you to notice me

although its a short poem, there's alot of substance to it. I seen you over on W.K.'s hub & thought I would stop by and read some of your Hubs. Congrats on being able to produce so many informative hubs. :) Although I haven't been able to get on HP for 6 months due to moving to a rural area & trying to find an internet provider, I am happy to announce I am back up and running and look forward to writing & talking to my friends again.

I also want to congratulate you on leaving a relationship that was holding you back and wish you strenghth in the road ahead. It's not easy but it is well worth it. I'm here if you ever feel the need to talk to someone. Take care. :)
