Like a polished stone I have a life

My time starts from heat and strife

The pressure it moulds and shapes

And leaves me part of a huge landscape

-

But as time passes I find my way

And in one spot I rarely stay

With the wind and rain as my guides

I take on new facets in huge strides

-

Time is nothing but fire and ice

With the passing I lose another slice

My outer shell is cracked and worn

And from my birthplace I am torn

-

I am now only half that what I used to be

And there is less and less for you to see

But I am unique, an individual to behold

A gem I was thousands of years past told

-

I had started out to be loose and earthly

But a millennium of life and now I’m wealthy

I have lived and seen a million seasons

To see man evolving with unknown reasons

-

And as a simple stone I found my way

To be with my family where I will stay

A precious gem never more to be alone

Not a bad ending for a humble stone
