the blue jewel is hurt
the blue jewel is drowning
into a sea of voices
pushing left and right
fighting for control
i reach out to the blue jewel
grabbing hold
hanging onto safety
wounds are slowly healing
only by time will the blue jewel become priceless
a beauty of unspeakable praise will shine forth
only by the caring and love of those around her
