  • Diamonds & Pearls

    Damaged throughout life
    Yet I'm still here
    My back there's a knife
    Shedding no tears

    Bruised and broken
    Far beyond repair
    My eyes are open
    Life just isn't fair

    Profits start climbing
    Man's value, plunder lesser
    Just like a diamond
    I was formed under pressure


    Humans have less value
    Than diamonds of the world
    But only the wounded oysters
    Can ever form a pearl

    I love how you bring out that we are formed in beauty through adversity. And I also often wonder why this is so?

              But only the wounded oysters can ever form a pearl - poemahontas, this reminds me of the bible verses that talks about the most valuable pearl. Beautifully stated.

                Me and my partner read this "it is beautiful," she said and I nodded.

                          This is an judicious use of lexical economy.
                          Poetically sagacious!

                          I especially loved
