Becoming a Gemstone

I'm a diamond in the rough
I'm a pearl in a shell,
when I'm shaken and polished
I will turn out swell.

I'm a disaster with potential
at times I'm a mess
but challenges are needed
to be a success.

Like diamonds that sparkle
and pearls that gleam,
that's what I'm becoming,
this is my dream.

My dream is to live
like the gem inside me,
the grit, grime and shell
all left behind me.

I'm slowly becoming
a beautiful Gemstone!
