In The Perfect Light - Poem by Adeosun Olamide

Here i am with my stone, my precious stone,
A rare treasure, A gemstone,
Here i am in my teeny-weeny room,
Protecting my precious stone,
Protecting it from you, safeguarding it from All of you,
I know my precious stone is invaluable,
I know my nonpareil stone is priceless,
I have heard from the perfect speakers
I am ascertained that my stone is of Immeasurable worth,
So i keep it so dearly,
But,
Never did i thought of the essence of my Precious stone,
It never did crossed my mind,
My precious stone lost to the dark,
Keeping my stone in the dark,
Away from the light,
Keeping my gemstone in the gloomy starless Stygian,
Concealed from you,
Shrouded from myself,
Secreted away from the light,
I waited and watched,
I waited in the dark,
Waiting for my stone to gleam in the gloomy Starless Stygian,
In the dark, The glistering image of it filled My heart,
Not the coruscating precious stone i was Given but its depiction,
In concealing my precious stone,
I kept it away from myself,
I kept its beauty away from the world,
Kept far away from the perfect light,
So we are, So you are,
Yes we can, Yet we don't,
I see the illuminated stone in you,
The twinkling, glistering talent beaming with Radiant light,
Polished by your Maker,
I see how you have kept it away,
Away from the perfect light,
Come you jewel,
Bring yourself into the Unrivaled Luminescence,
Into you is an eminence deposited,
A glory,
Share your beauty,
When kept in, be sure its kept away from Yourself, not only from us,
Bring the Diamond into the perfect light,
Only then will it beauty be most appreciated.
