    God has poured into me, something the average man can not see.
    I am a jewel, one of a kind. I am rare and that's what God had in mind.
    Men shall search high and low, looking from sea to sea, shore to shore.
    For he doesn't know where it could be, until he sees the jewel in me.
    Not a diamond, ruby or gold, it's to precious for the natulral eye to behold.
    locked deep inside of me, only who God allow holds the key.
    Atreasure many has sought to reach, only to find it wasn't ment to be.
    It's not on displaly ant any store, to be admired, touched, or even adored.
    Not from the coal mines, nor a cave. Not from an oyster, or even man made.
    Just like many others, it has seen it's days.
    Abused and worn until God tucked it away.
    Tired of seeing it misused, He safely protected it for you.
    Like a rare find in an attic, many thought it was no good. It was overlooked, for God knew it would.
    It caught your eye and you handled it with care.
    You realized what you found was not common but rare.
    Just where God told you it would be, you found something special. What you found was me.

    We should all realize our worth this way. We are each one of a kind, and the right one will see and know. Wonderful write.
