Hidden Diamond

Title – Hidden diamond
Deep in the core of our essence

Lies a yolk, pure and unsullied

Devoted to its stand;

It, like a mother brings forth life

And death in block blows

Beyond it’s false pretense,

Is a gruesome genuineness

Beyond it’s cloak of mischief

A hurting heart is hidden

Begs proudly to be beheld

Clamours in silence to be heard
If only it were transparent;

And has not an opaque barricade

That hides it from quick eyes

If only it would shed off the dead scales

Accumulated from many a bitter broth from life’s cruel cup

You’ll see it shines a glitters fine

And you’ll know;

That deep in the core of our essence

Lies a hidden diamond

Devoted to it’s stand

Be it ugly, good or bad
