Scattered in the water along with the others,
A fragment of what we once were; all one.
In pieces now, separate from one another.
Glimmering, sparkling in the light that beams down.
Magnified by the water, still just a piece I am
Grounded beneath the mud, among the rocks
Surrounded by dirt and filth not glam
But solid, complacent and blocked.
Picked up by the hands, wrinkled, frail
Examined awhile; intricately, twice
Measured, weighed. from scale to scale.
Until someone could fix me a price
Though broken and scattered among shards of glass
Founded by One who had set me apart
They seated me now above copper and brass
More gleaming than silver or gold from afar.
Chiseled, carved, polished and shaped
Molded to perfection, embedded in gold.
Displayed in a set and there I was named.
Multifaceted, luminous, precious and bold.
Rainbows of colour explode from within

I really enjoyed that poem, thanks. I would say in a cheesy way, ‘it rolled of the tongue’ but better to say it had balance or it seemed to work.
Beautiful. Very skilled. I really like this picture of redemption as well. I enjoy the subtle yet consistent rhyming flow.
Thank you. Very few catch onto the underlying redemption story.
I bet. When you realize how much you depend upon it – Him – it becomes a bit easier to see.
True. Thank you for reading my work.
Thank you for writing it! Hopefully you’re cool with a few more comments along the way! Lol
Your work certainly deserve it.
Thanks for the follow!
I also realize that I am very much on the late show with these comments! Lol. Glad I found your work though!
