You are a gem amongst stones
And I am just a common pebble
I only shine with the rain
I can not seem stand, just stumble

Your beauty has me lost
For you will never take my hand
You already have a following
Turning other rocks to sand

As they try to impress you
Shattering themselves for a false chance
Showing all that they have
So maybe they can catch your glance

You are a true gem to all those around
Beautiful on the inside and out
Elegance in its truest form
As I am just a lout

Though I truly do admire
All the things you do inspire
I can only grow inside
This humble geode I pray you require

One day I hope you get close enough to see
That if broken through my shell
I too can shine and show my radiance
And perhaps see something worthy in me as well
