A Diamond In The Rough


Did you see her coming
or did you just look past her,
through her?
Around perhaps?

She was there.
A diamond in the rough.
Yet you missed her didn’t you?
You didn’t see the beauty
hidden behind
frames of glass,
a frumpy sweater,
tattered jeans,
and sockless shoes.

You looked and saw
So sad.
Your diamond
walked by you today
and you saw
only a stone.
