A Diamond in the Rough

When a diamond doesn't know it's worth
It likes to hang on to others to prove itself

But there are some diamonds
 that don't need to prove

They don't need to be dangling
around anyone's neck or ring

They don't need validation
 to prove their own worth

These are the gems
 that are so rare in nature

That they lose their worth
 when valued by the naive

These diamonds glisten in their glory
and emit their own magnificence splendor

They don’t let others entomb their grace
Nor let anyone extinguish their strength

They hold themselves in Reverence
Since only a gem like these can

Differentiate between the rough and
their own real fortunate wealth
