Sea salts and minerals form a pearl within its shell.
Waves rock the shell in its resting place,
But it is the grinding that causes the gem to form.
May your hardest work become your greatest.
May the grinding gnawing challenge
Formed around the kernel of your doubts
Polish the fondest longings of your heart
Into a gem of fulfillment.
Living the truth of who we are
Is neither right nor wrong, nor bad nor good;
Yet it brings one to the gem of our inner essence.
