Azure skies glow ruby
Less or more stays to be.
Artistic dreams suppressed,
Watch as the rules congest.
Unrealistic ideals,
Hidden amongst trap reels.
Gems shine not when smothered,
Heartless words heard muttered.
Though a dark shadow looms,
Light still hides in dark rooms.
Some gems glow in moonlight,
Affright not of dim night.
Talent remains unfound,
Often hidden down ground.
If gems could shine glorious,
Would force laborious?

A poem that is a little deeper than it appears at first sight.
