Diamond in the Rough

Just as a batter
Is ready in the box
The pitcher sets up
Decides to outfox

The pitcher throws
Not a fastball
Or even a slider
He throws the dreaded curve-ball

An analogy this may be
It teaches a fortuitous lesson
One's perfect laid out plans
Can always be thrown into question

The lesson learned
Should be ingrained
Our lives don't always
Follow the path determined

The ability to change
To become malleable
Without the lost of the one's core
Is of great value

Opportunities may present
When least thought of
To hit a home run
Rather then strike out of

What may be least expected
Hides a truth to be told
A positive realism
Brings you forward to the fold

The very least moment
All buried in a dirt mound
At home plate in the rough
A diamond is found.
