A thought of self reflection.
Inspiration often speaks to me in the morning.

The Hidden Diamond

An innerlight shines from within us,
A beacon for our own darkened path.
Like a miner's hat focused on the coal,
We follow with uncertainty and wonder,
Digging, ever digging, for the sparkle
That lies in the hidden diamond of our soul.
