Jewels In The Making

Jewels in the making
Not merely for taking
First there is developing
Extracting and mining
The hidden treasures
Buried deep within
It takes imagination
To take a chunk of coal
Refine it to shine and glow
Get rid of every single flaw
So people will ooh and awe
Polishing rough edges
Fixing foul smudges
Kicking cantankerous
Contentious traits
Cruel characteristics
Manipulative logistics
Inordinate affections
Irritating attitudes
That start family feuds
Terrorize at the table
During a delightful dinner
Making the worst sinner
Unable to be a winner
Without some pressure
Correction and confrontation
Intolerance of aggravation
Patience with frustration
Loving-kindness unconditional
Tenderness inspirational
Words passionately motivational
Focused leadership directional
Purity and authority most powerful
Applying needed pressure forceful
For facilitating change and reform
Making you squirm like a worm
Writhe within like a subtle snake
Wholeheartedly endure the process
Because is will certainly make
A better person of you providing
You don't waver and hit the brake
Hold on now, don't slow down
Though your head spins around
Your heart becomes weary
Pain makes your eyes teary
Don't you become dreary
For there is progress occurring
As you become a jewel alluring
Yet your participation is required
Remember this you desired
Focus fully. Don't get tired
Though you be tried by fire
Taken through intense heat
Stay the course to be complete
To be purified and perfect
Illustrious and wanting nothing
A fascinating jewel for the taking
Captivating and intoxicating
With rich splendor and beauty
Free from clouding impurity
Without blemishes and obscurity.
Be cleaned that you not be dirty
Don't be moved impetuously
Get beyond deadly impulsivity
Continual emotional instability
Be anchored that you can be
A delightful gem radiantly
Shining forth gloriously.
Embrace the process happily
The rewards are exceedingly
Abundant and worth the test
Therefore undergo the process
Be distinguished and nothing less
A notable jewel with magnificence
Emitting light from East to West.
The journey will be greatly blessed
Wherein you will find inner rest
Arise to become your personal best
To shine beyond your present mess.
