My Gift

I have been given an incredible gift, a diamond that shines brilliant colors that light the way and enlightens me.

My diamond has shown me hues that I could scarcely imagine.

But sometimes I get blinded by the colors, try to grab at them instead of appreciating them.

I want to write great stories and poems about this diamond.

I want to show the world my diamond, show them how incredible it is.

I want to write brilliant words that shake the world. But alas God has given me many talents but not the power of prose.

I need my diamond but sometimes am blinded by its brilliance and lose my way.

I fear while keeping an eye on North on my compass I got lost in a crater and have fallen and lost my diamond.

Hugs. Never forget your dreams, and when life gets you down or becomes too still have friends to reach out too. We will be here waiting with open arms. Now, go work your magic to make your life all you want it to be..

No, not easy. But worth it if we achieve what we aim to do...

beautiful my friend. I hope that life finds a way to give you all that your heart longs for.
