The Uncut Diamond (Independant Woman)

The Uncut Diamond
(Independent woman)

There it is...
Raw, untamed, uncut
It stands there brilliantly
Many men have lent their sweat to find it
Deep in the earth it lay waiting
To be seen and admired
It is unformed

Misshapen by time its had many years of darkness
Seeking light
Its endless lack of motion has made it strong hardened
This diamond in the rough uncut-
Sought by many, admired by all
Displayed for all its brilliance
To be seen and shown

It's in the light now
But after the show is over,
And all the admirers have left
The darkness returns

See this hardened, brilliant, uncut diamond
Is good for the show
But it's the diamond that allows itself to be cut and softened
That sees the light at home

Benjamin A. Casey
B. Alexander 20010
