A Diamond In The Rough

Poem By Audrey Heller

You can't judge a book by it's cover.
It can be attractive, but the contents,
may not be what they should be. The
same goes for people. They too, can
be very different, then what you actually
see. You can't just have a nice face to
look at, as that simply isn't enough. I'll
take a person with a great sense of
humor and caring. A diamond, in the
rough. It's strange when you really like
someone, their looks are now
secondary. No longer, do you see
the same face. You'll find they've
become so very special. No one
else, could ever, take their place!

All that glitters is not gold. It's great how we change with age. Our values are different even the way we value each other. I'm glad you are there Audrey Heller I need poets like you to keep me centered.
