To Become a Pearl

To Become a Pearl

A Poem by Pretty_as_a_Poet
"

My path to success

"

 

I wanted to shine, to be seen within the crowds

So I began to dream, I had my head up in the clouds,

 

I was just a grain of sand, out of trillions on the beach,

For a while, I was nobody, my dreams were out of reach,

 

They said I shouldn’t even try, but I did it anyway,

They said I couldn’t sculpt my legacy out of shards of broken clay,

 

As years went by, I worked until my talent elevated,

I rose higher in stature, and I became appreciated,

 

Then, with my potential realized, I was told that I’d go far,

I pushed and pushed and pushed myself until I became a star  

 

But when I became a star, there were too many in the sky,

So I couldn’t have been spotted with the mortal naked eye,

 

 They couldn’t quench the passion that was burning in my soul,

I built myself a mountain, though I was born inside a hole,

 

I took another gander and I gave it one last shot,

To finally show the world just exactly what I’ve got

 

The world threw at me lemons, and I gave it lemonade,

All in hope that I could one day bask in all I’ve made,

 

I was just a grain of sand, an ordinary girl,

I guess they didn’t figure out that I’d become a pearl,
