Tarnished-Diamond in the rough

Updated on December 26, 2013

Rough on the outershell
the greyish cover speaks
it never reveals the inner truth
what the soul has to sing.

Iron fists pound
harsh words calcify the heart
hard as stone
its a shelter
its a wall barricading the
secret hidden treasures.

Tarnished by the breath of bad weather
the sound of insulting words
a dark world down under
its easy to drop her heart on the ground
it seems so bitter cruel
its a broken truth
cracked by a mad mad world
confusion blackens the eyes

Smashed to the ground
Light comes through
reveals the hidden truth
down under she shines like the brightest diamond.

The most beautiful smile
a diamond in the rough
she sparkles in the middle of love
crystal clear the mind
no longer tarnished by confusion
swiped away by innocent love
pure love glimmers like crystal waters
the clarity of a diamond
brilliant she knows to keep shining
in the sunlight of pure love

I see the sparkle in her eyes
a diamond in the rough
it's amazing so many could never see the truth.
It's such a precious moment
when she shines
a sparkling truth
it's quicker to lose a pure diamond
thinking she's so dark and rough.

Tear drops of water
frozen come down
moonlight keeps her heart cool
sunlight warms the soul
brightening up the view
crystal clear love reveals the diamond
in the rough.
She'll keep shining
keep smiling
knowing she's a diamond in the rough.

      Thank you tireless traveler. I agree, most people do judge others, and how do you know underneath one day they will shine brighter than a star. :)
