I was a pebble in a pond
Fishes and I had a bond.
I thought I was ugly and round,
But I heard stories that happened above the ground,
They said days were blue,
Lips moved but the words weren’t true.
Laughter was a way,
What was in their heart’s they didn’t say.
But my curious self couldn’t resist,
So what if i had a wish-list
I rolled in circles day after day,
I saw my goals turn grey.
But the waves were my friends,
They told me all about the upcoming trends.
I absorbed what I could ,
Believe in yourself, I should.
I tried and failed,
I took journeys and sailed.
Many times I reached a dead end,
But it wasn’t the time to bend.
So I trusted and let it all go,
And saw my energy flow.
By now i looked rough but still round,
But finally I reached the notorious grounds.
The land called me a rock,
Useless and heavy block,
I was pressurised by such thoughts,
I wasn’t easy so I fought,
I fell and broke ,
But in knowledge I soak.
Break open and I wondered if i could survive,
But my attitude was to strive.
In darkness i found a light,
I heard them say ‘ we found a diamond so white ‘..
