I’ve been buried for so long
Trapped in a world of darkness
A world of poverty
Why me I’ve done no wrong
Lusting of a world of happiness
Like a flower waiting to bloom
I to wait upon the day
I will receive the light
I’m a lifeless zombie crowned with a tomb
One day I will soon …
be recognize
By the eyes of those who will appreciate
The great talent invested inside
But until that day arrives
They are forever blind
And I am
Forever label as nothing
Till my appointed time arrives
For me to shine
For see…
I’m a diamond that has been buried for so long
Trapped in a world of darkness
A world of poverty
But yet done no wrong

Currently unavailable for purchase

I will one day be discovered and i will shine
……diamonds are forever ……..
