The Hidden Gems

Underneath the exterior
Is a beauty undefined
One that most
Pass over
Leave behind
A beauty that could
Change a heart
Break a pattern
The tough covers the gentle
Gives protection to the weaknesses
That come out in the dark
Slipping through the cracks
Left by those who don’t understand
Choose to deny
The person inside
The people who batter the exterior
Damage the interior
More than they will ever know
But so journeys my soul
The center of a brutal fight
A fight for control of my life
Which I may not have for long
