Diamond in the Rough

Updated on September 07, 2015

When she learns to love herself better than anyone else can do

She does not need you

When she learns to become her own best friend, then it's true

She chose you

So throw it all away if you must

But, remember, she just might be a diamond in the rough

      Short, crisp and aware. A very powerful couplet added. Much Love.

      I've always said, 'A diamond in the rough ... is better than no diamonds at all!' Do like your short verse, m'dear.

      I like this! Sometimes we overlook a diamond that's worth millions because we can't see beyond the rough, unshaped gem.

      We are all diamonds, some a bit rougher than others.

      Aww, thanks! That's so sweet, Ed. But, let's face it, I'm probably about as unpolished as they come! LOL
