"I know and Understand deep down inside and beyond that life itself is acting all of this out; this kamikaze drama, cosmic if you will but certainly comic in a style so common as to invite confusion" -Al Young (How stars start)


You're a Gem of a Kind
A heart of gold on your sleeve
Which bleeds not red
But blue
Because you are a different soul
Soul of silver in your hand
Sterling
Never Fading, or turning colors
Hopes of Diamond in your heart
You hold them with such a conviction
No one can detour you
No one would dare to try
Even when things turn awry
You hold fast to your dreams
Beauty is only skin deep
But YOU'RE beautiful where it counts

The goal is not about living forever, the goal is about creating something that can.

You really sustain the poetic mood throughout the entire piece, which is wonderful! You use a wonderful amount of poetic devices like metaphors to enhance the poem as well. Beautiful!
