Hewn from rocks and pebbles, dirty murky beginnings. Forgotten over time. The harder you hit me, the brighter I shine. The harder you rub me out, the brighter I shine. The darkness you put me in, the brighter I shine. The more you break me, the brighter I shine. From all facets of light, through life and endless time, I shine. I am precious. I am unbreakable. I am strength unbound. I can cut through you, and you will still desire me. For is that not, what I was made to do? I shine. From the core. Dig deeper and there you will find me. A rich mans commodity. A poor mans treasure. I shine. Keep me safe, and I will shine for you forever.
