Diamonds that loose their lusture

We are all born imperfect
But yet 
pure in heart and mind
Diamonds that shine and sparkle
That lose their lustre with the ravages of time
Life can be cruel and we soon get covered in layers of mud
We wear a mask to the world
That says I'm ok
But hides the real person 
Both the bad and the good.

Sometimes we have to excavate the layers
That made us who we are
To find ourselves
And once again
Sparkle like a  diamond 
And twinkle like a star..

    Lovely write, Peter. I agree with you....the layers need to go. Sometimes, it's just easier to hide..the brilliance might be blinding! ;) Btw...Andrea meant that there was a contest on this theme, and the sponsor canceled it for some reason. Hope that is enough of an explanation.

    - Yes, we wear a mask all together - We can not tear out a single page of our life but we can throw the mask on fire. - Really well written, Peter! - oxox // Anne-Lise :)

    Love it. Got one of my own titled "Happy online, sad in real life". Basically it is about the "mask" that we all wear. Kudos

    THis is a sweet lesson about people. I bet it was meant for diamonds in the rough contest. Why the heck did she ever write Cancelled on that one? I wonder if she will go ahead and do a winners' list!!
