    A gem in the rough is a sight to be seen. It most likely is dirty, unshapely and unclean.Did you know that it has the potential to be the best stuff, If you covet it, cut it, and polish it up? But, if you don’t have a good jewelers eye, you wouldn’t be able to discern it from a pie in the sky?
    Each person that you meet is a gem in the rough. When`s the last time, you cared to buff a gem up? Allow yourself to be a jeweler and customize one to your size. The jewel that you uncover may bring tears to your eyes.
    If it doesn’t but is still great to see, who knows that gem might be in the price range for me. Now, I might cut a jewel and place it on a shelf. Maybe, one day you might want to keep it for yourself. So, now that you read this you better prepare. Look all around you , your gem may be near. I’ve got to end this poem and take care of some other stuff. I should be out looking for my gem in the rough.
