A Diamond in the Rough
 
Buried beneath the shine
Protected strength of mine
Impossible to break.
 
Words not understood
Sounds never heard
Breathing heavy on me.
 
Protected by a colorless
And, brilliant shine
Miserably, they fail.
 
Touching, hurting
Trying to break
Freckled faced innocence.
 
Stop, listen and see
Pure innocence shine
A Diamond in the rough.
