This is your life, are you who you want to be?

I am an ever forming pearl
Starting as a little nothing
Progressing towards greatness
Being shoved somewhere dark and un-wanting
As others crowd around, un-knowing what to expect
Realizing the bright waters, reaching for the surface
Growing larger every day, still questioning
As the sand caves in all around
Thinking, will I ever get there?
Watching the darkness grow as I do
Falling deeper and deeper into the depths
Knowing no hope, having no faith
When the thought became unbearable
Finally the pit of despair was retrieved and brought to the surface
Feeling the hands all around
Knowing what it feels like to be wanted
Finally reached the greatest point
Being passed from hand to hand, gazed at
The knowing of importance and having value
Being retrieved from the depths of darkness
To the kingdom of greatness

I hope that people realize that even when there seems to be no hope, there will always be a hope and future for them.
