…………….Precious Stones

Some few have sailed with purpose found,
While others were adrift.
The latter serve out all their days
As if life were a shift, 

A shift that is repeated oft
So there’s no need to try
To be exact with rule or cup –
Another round comes by. 

But life’s an uncut diamond worth
More than its weight in gold.
And from that rock can come a stone
Whose beauty is extolled. 

But jeweler’s cuts must be exact;
There is no second story.
Those strikes upon the precious stone
Bring one to ruin or glory.
