Gemstone Woman

I once met a woman

Who had fallen to her knees in sadness

Yet she glowed

Like the most radiant gemstone

Gleaming with brilliant light

From within herself

Yet she cried and cried and cried

About small things that made her feel weak

Unable to realize

The strength of a gemstone

And the light of brilliance

Already within her.
