Poetry in Motion provides a glimpse into the life and thoughts of author Emmett Mitchell.

Diamond in the Rough

I am still in my original state, the same state I’ve been in since I pushed my way up through many layers of earth.

There is more to me than what someone might expect in a diamond because I have not been cut and polished yet…
