Somedays

Some days
I feel
proud
to be
me

I feel
like
a
precious
stone

Valuable
Substantive
Worthy of
being
worth something

Other days
I feel
embarrassed
to be
me

I feel
like a
contagious, ugly
terminal
affliction

Needing to
be
quarantined
on a
stony desolate
island

In between days
I hope
for
a coming
together

Of my
hopes and dreams
with my
faults
and fears

That all
will be
beautifully salvaged
with
nothing wasted
