I was writing this poem for a contest on birthstones and the more I wrote the more I realized that though this poem was written about my birthstones it was also written about me.
Opal:
Pink tourmaline steals my glory
Soft and delicate opal
Who wants that?
Pink tourmaline is much prettier
More suitable for a mothers ring
My name means
Child as beautiful as love
I used to be treasured and loved
Set in crowns and worn in necklaces
My beauty for all to see
Now this lie steals my love
My rightful place
Adorns your neck and hands
For all to see
And most believe
That its her rightful place
Though she stole it from me
Im not pink like her
But when the light hits me just right
All can see the pink in me
But at times I am green with envy
Sometimes blue too
I have a rainbow hidden within me
If you look you will see
It is me
