Diamonds on the inside

I wore diamonds on the outside

but inside I was just rot

I was meant to sparkle for you

but dirt was all you got

for I didn’t know my value

even though you tried to see

that underneath the rubble

was a worthy jewel to be

for my diamonds on the inside

were weighted down by past

so I didn’t shine as I should

and be the star at last

I couldn’t reflect sunlight

I only bought you rain

I was meant to bring you happiness

yet all you got was pain

my insides now are shining

and sparkle is on show

though ill never be a diamond

not one you’ll ever know
