hanging without purpose on a string

is one pearl not prettier than the next
though seemingly the same they have characteristics and flaws
yet when all strung together look perfect and simple
yet still hanging without purpose on a string

i guess i am the blackest pearl commingling with all the others
all the while loathing our existence…ill at ease in social circles
where we are supposed to shine, failing to shine and draw attention

wearing the string so thin it breaks
they fall right where they lay
and they lay right where they stay…but i quietly roll away
just beyond the edge of sight
where no one can see me unless they look

and on a string of beauty and pale
the flawed one that drew attention in its darkness, shines no more

it radiates and it glimmers but only from inside
making sure to go unnoticed by the average passerby
