poem ~ I want to be

I want to be a pearl
as I live out God's plan,
Fully committed to the task
no matter the outcome at hand.

I want to be a diamond
as I reflect your light,
Knowing that this only comes
when extreme pressure becomes out of sight.

I want to be worth more than gold
because I know deep down,
The cost that someone paid for my soul
can't be reproduced in another mould.

I want to be sparkling like silver
as I behold the true depths of its beauty, 
When my character becomes known
even in the conflict of duty.

I want to shine bright
every day of my life,
As I with courage stay strong
another day in this fight.

I want to be bold
even in the refining process,
Never afraid to stand out 
in my uniqueness of purpose.

I want to be a ripple
of love every day,
No matter what you ask of me
as I live out my days.
