What's More Important

I may not have a good memory,
I can't absorb facts like you do.
I may not be able to concentrate for long,
And I'm slower than the both of you.

But I don't mind.
It won't bother me.
I know what's more important.

I may not be bright on the outside,
But inside I sparkle like diamonds.

Sure, I'm far from perfect,
But my graces and virtues are in the right place.
If I can treasure my warmth inside,
Then I will always
Keep faith.
