Diamond Embedded

At first

I thought you were diamond embedded

And then

I saw how imperfectly you were created

You willow crying like you lost perfection

And some of us

see your little perfect complexions

A pine standing like it's always being spoken of

But only a month's worth

you're always mentioned

So stop being snobby about your palm that withstands hurricanes

Or smiling like rocks will never erode

You will erode someday

Your petals will wilt someday

Your crystal clear will wither

You are no diamond embedded 

For you started as a charcoal

Can't you see how you are created

We all born with some imperfections

Some with some type of complexions

They speak about you 

You think
