self made diamond



diamonds are formed
deep within the earth
under tremendous pressure
under just the right conditions
starting with a lump of carbon
a lump of coal if you like
over time and under pressure
but given even more right conditions
the earth ceases to apply pressure
the piece of coal applies
the pressure to herself
because she can feel herself
becoming a diamond
she knows in her mind
and in her heart
that she is a diamond
and that going forward
nothing can stop her
from reaching the destiny
of her true beauty
