Flawed Diamond

Long ago buried

Condensed over time

To form an one of a kind

Rocky entrance

To be tough


And yet not quite


Add a little


Some colour here

A crack there

A glimmer of sunlight

Hits the stone

Just right

Adding flare

And pizzazz



Some words

Of warning

With a history

Lesson or Two

The rock becomes

Worthy of Diamond


And yet undesirable

To those who value

Love over money
