Diamond in the Rough

Landscape littered with refuse
Where crow flies overhead
Where vermin scavenges for food
Where others dare not tread

Where stench of yesterday is thrown
Out on the garbage heap
Where foul odour lingers in the nose
Where rot and decay steeps

Yet midst this putrefaction
A diamond in the rough
Lies hidden, lost, abandoned
Unrefined; not buffed

But still a diamond all the same
A gem with so much more
Potential, worth, capacity
If just realised and restored

And likewise, there will be those days
Those months and maybe years
When the jewel within is tarnished by
Many wet and salty tears

Those times when circumstance may yield
Turbulence and unrest
But see those times as polishing
The inner latent best

So that the diamond in the rough
Will stand out undisguised
A precious stone shining so bright
Potential realised

Achieve!

Keep your thoughts pure and clear
Keep your hearts open and kind
Keep your purpose focussed and bright
Keep your life on track;defined

And be the best you can be
Be a beacon for the rest
Be accountable; be virtuous
And above all be honest

For chances come and chances go
In this world where we exist
But stay on the straight and narrow
And temptation you’ll resist

To let your light shine brightly
To let you be on the qui vive
To let you make the most of everything
To live fully and achieve

 

Just Do It! (The Can Do Way)

  

Potential

When the day recedes in a symphony of colour
Flaming the dusky sky
I sleep that night midst dreams on fire
As slumber passes by

Then I rise renewed to a sun kissed day
With hope priming my heart
Invigorated, alive, content
Ready to play my part

For like a stage that nature’s set
With all her glorious might
The synergy of heart and mind
Awakens true delight

And dreams aren’t lost in sleepy folds
Yet live and are set free
To bring the best out; realise
Potential within me!

Let’s Be Solution Focussed

Let’s be solution focussed
Less being so intent
On all our problems, woes and strife
That push in less relent

Let’s map out a way forward
Consider hitches too
Then board the bus determined to
Bringing goals right into view

Where aims are clearly marked out
Our vision’s crystal clear
And motivation surges through
Our head from ear to ear

Where persistence is the buzz word
With dedication’s might
Encouraged by what’s gone before
To get to the end sight

And then when we’ve discovered
This way’s the way to go
Let’s sit back, contemplate, enjoy
And just go with the flow

A world made of keyholes
Where you are the keys
Each one very different
Each matched uniquely
