In the rough…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was cold, wet, and full of fun as Pepper and I dragged trees in the stinging mist. The sky waned but we kept carrying the fallen, one branch at a time.

Today is another poem day:

I wish people could see through my eyes for just a moment.
 we stand with all our good and bad visible to the world
 unknowing which path we should take to grow or which we should take to know

All too often we cannot see past but others might
 for we face our lives as chiseled and honed
 unsure we strive to understand and see beyond the simple that lies before us

I wish people could see through my eyes as I see them
 there are no good nor bad and there are no divisions to make us sad
 only infinite gems forged and cut by the moments that we find each and every day

I wish people could know. even in the darkest moment they are still
 more than a diamond in the rough but instead a masterpiece
 slowly being uncovered by toils and trials of us all. we are always more.

So as the sun sets on another day, remember you are amazing each day, and as the world uncovers your facets, find a way to see past what others see. Believe in who you are, each day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live deeply…
