"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." -Dr. Seuss


A diamond, a ruby, an emerald,

is just a rock.
Nothing more,

nothing less.
"Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder?"
What makes a diamond,

better than any other stone, a pebble on the side of the street?
Nothing. A diamond doesn't look
any different than
any other rock, when you find it.
How do you know,
it's true beauty?
It's true wealth?
It's true worth?
A diamond is nothing
extrordinary, when you find it.
But if you look closer, you might find
something worth looking for.
You just have to polish it.

The author's comments:
This poem is about looking beyond the surface, and also beyond what everyone else thinks. You can't tell who a person is just by looking at them, and you can't let other people decide that for you, either. You have just have to look farther than that.
