Mined in a rainbow of colours

My garnet – a picture of me

From the rich green Tsavorite
The soil of my soul

To the bright orange of Mandarin
The roaring fire of my spirit

My garnet speaks of

Friendship, trust and loyalty

The things I seek within you

Because, I searched and I found

These things within me
