Diamond In The Rough: Poetry’s Birthstone


Many counted me out. Silence didn't silence my DNA.

It has seen the line of fire. Its blazing trails tell the way.

I was shaped by the laws that sit and wait,

The enforcers of my progress, the progression of my fate.

My solitary confinement polished my outcome.

My inter-com refused to be outdone.

For every obstacle I've faced, I've faced it knowing this…..

Every Diamond goes through flames…then it's polished.

I've encountered hard times but those times may not be enough.

My blazing trails tell the tale of a "Diamond In The Rough"
