A pocket full of diamonds

Imagine this:

You are wearing clothes that have deep pockets.

In those pockets are handfuls of rare and precious stones, such as rubies, emeralds, amethysts, sapphires, topaz and of course diamonds in all hues.

Each stone has clarity, depth and the purest colour imaginable.

What worth would you place on these stones?

Of what value would you hold them seeing as they just "live" in your pockets on a daily basis? Do you give them away easily? Do you take them for granted? Do you find them annoying (they do take up quite some space and can be noisy when you move about afterall :))? Are they of ANY use to you?

These might seem like rhetorical questions for who ever has the chance to carry such gems in ones pockets in "real" life?

But you do! :)

If your home, your workplace, your church, your neighbourhood, your street, your park, your town, your country and even cyberspace, are your pockets... metaphorically speaking....then everyone that lives, breathes and moves within is equivalent to one of those gems!

So...of what value do you hold them?
