I was hidden,
Beneath tons of undesirables.
But You never stopped looking.
Just when I thought I’d never be discovered,
You reached down and unearth me.
I knew I was different but I couldn’t figure out why,
You told me: “I’ll show you what you can become, and who you truly are, if you allow me to work on you. It won’t be easy, but I promise I will be with you every step of the way. Will you trust me to make you, be the best you there can be?”.
I answered “yes” and slowly took your hand.
I didn’t know who you were nor what to expect,
But I knew I wanted to see,
Exactly what or who I was able to be.
The journey was long.
Several processes to endure.
Heat, pressure, carving, shaping, more heat, molding, rubbing, more heat, more pressure, shinning, polishing,
I’ve really just lost count.
Now it’s over,
I behold my before and after,
And immediately utter a gusty laughter.
I am a diamond!
I am a DIAMOND!
Watch me sparkle and shine,
I am perfectly divine.
I think I know Your identity,
Now I rest in peace and serenity.
I will call you Creator,
No, no, no,
I know, I know,
You are the Diamond Maker.
