Diamond In The Rough

Believe in your Future and forgive the past

Laugh at yourself laugh in the moments
And heck just laugh!


When things go wrong, and they often will

And life feels like it's constantly uphill

Try to forgive when other's get it wrong

Perhaps they’re struggling to connect and belong


Sometimes the words being thought

Aren’t what actually what gets said

Those kindly meant, soft gentle words

Don’t sound sweet and leave a sting instead


People don’t mean to be grumpy

Hurt your feelings, heart or soul

They have no intentions to make your day

Feel harder or darker than they know


Please know you're appreciated

For all the big and little things you do

The kindness, laughter, and love you show

For being, honest brave and true


Even when it’s hard

Don’t shut your heart or soul away

The world will always be a better place

When you let yourself shine a little each day


Know that good days will always follow hard times

So keep looking up to the stars

The best is yet to come
