I believe I've found my gem. 

Now I understand it has it's imperfections, 

but it's giving my heart rhythm. 

I'm to give every crack it's correction. 

'Til my glistening diamond is whole. 

Then, and onlly then, will I have fulfilled my role. 

 

What God am I that I decide this change? 

For I attempt to fill these cracks. 

Yet, I am just a man, am I deranged?

The earth now demands its treasure back, 

but I've grown to love these faults. 

Filling these cracks was nothing but an insult. 

 

I should've fought nail and tooth. 

That precious ore was my pride and joy. 

And now here I sit, living proof. 

Hold what you love close, lest they be destroyed, 

In search of my diamond, every rock I will turn. 

This is a lesson I wish I never learned.
