A Tough Terrain

I am the rough patch and creases in the rock
In the dark
While all the diamonds sparkle and shine
In the sun.

I am the hole in the wall
Fighting to be heard and seen
While all the flowers sway and bloom
To the rhythm of people's admiration.

I am an ordinary face in the crowd
Blending in amongst hundreds of people
While the models, actors, and beautiful people
Live an everlasting life in the limelight.

I am me. I love me and I hate me.
Because sometimes, being me is
More than enough.
And sometimes, it barely
Means anything at all.
