A diamond in the rough, is extremely valuable
Although, it has no brilliance, yet.
The first cut, begins to reveal that brilliance.
Just to behold God’s wonderful creation,
At it’s first conception,
The brilliance still held within it,
Just waiting to be developed.
Many things will develop that brilliance.
Each facet that’s cut,
Opens that brilliance for all to see
The final product
Of a life’s work
Is a gem that shines
Forever more brilliant
Than life itself.
