The Diamond

-Gen Kae

Beyond the crowd of blurry faces,

above the stars and dazzling graces,

there lies a diamond in the rough, fighting through,

though life is tough, no one tells about their tears,

and no one dares confront their fears,

But the diamond endures it all, fighting problems big and small,

Real diamonds glisten no matter what,

though they may be broken  and turned to dust,

if you want to know  a diamonds real,look for imperfections they reveal,

look deeply past the beautiful exterior,

and then look broad into the interior.
