The Gem

I can't see to the middle

I can't see but this mess

I can't see an out or change

I can't see beyond the stress

 

But I know there is more there

there has to be below the shield

If I can get there

that wound can finally be healed

 

I peeled away the layers

I got down to the core

the gem that lay below

the gem I hadn't seen before

 

It was brighter than I ever imagined

It was beautiful, breath taking even

I can't believe I hid it that long

Now I have something, someone, to believe in

 

I was protecting it

hiding it from the light

it's time to let the world see it

now that I have clear sight

of who and what I am

I am perfect, just right

I liked this for it reminds me of not only a person revealing their true selves, but even in nature. The butterfly comes to mind. Should we not all strive to be like the butterfly, once freed from it's cocoon shows its true beauty?
