There was a diamond in the rough

There was a diamond in the rough buried in the ground.
She uprooted herself but was never found.
All the rubies and rhinestones around her were picked. But soon they were thrown back after being mistreated. One day a man was looking at the jewels and came across a shine.A shine that would light up his darkest time. All the rubies and rhinesrones tried to hide the glare so the man would pick them despite their tear.
But the man moved the worthless jewels aside.
How uplifted was the diamonds' pride.
Weeks went by and the rhinestones tried to steal the man's attention. But the man stayed true and tough.
Never letting anyone come between him and his sparkling diamond.
No longer the diamond in the rough.
