I Am        
by Sefunmi.Savage


I am both Stone and Diamond
I wonder my truthful form
I hear the raging thunder
I see the advancing storm
I want my contentment, my danger
I am both Stone and Diamond

I pretend the moon and stars bow
I feel no desire to wake
I touch that peaceful warmth
I worry my heart will not take
I cry for fear and for you
I am both Stone and Diamond

I understand to hope is strength
I say I will hold my own
I dream my island, my crown
I try to uncover and share
I hope that you will dare
I am both Stone and Diamond

Love the image and words by Savage. This sums up how every woman feels when she first wakes up in the morning, drags her feet to the bathroom and looks at herself in the mirror and when she's all dressed up for the day and looks at herself again in the mirrow. A strong shot, SAVO.
SAVO: I cant say I know that feeling Mia, but Im sure you speak well for your gender smile. I always appreciate your comments. Cheers
Lovely picture Savo.
SAVO: Cheers Ron
top notch Savosmile
SAVO: I always appreciate your comments Tim. Cheers smile
