A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH

by GEORGE CAMPOS
(ONTARIO, CA. - USA)

Diamonds are beautiful
Gemstones precious and valuable
But their beginning is common carbon
A dark, combustible potion..

Through years of intense heat
and high pressure they develop
Outside forces eliminate impurities
and their beauty amplifies.

When we are sick and hurting
experience pain and suffering
Whether physical or emotional
This may be essential??

God uses testing in our lives
to rid us of impurities
Though life is difficult and tough
You may be God's Diamond in the rough..
