coal and diamonds...written today

I hope that
all this pressure
has a purpose.
If that ream of coal
were sentient
would it cry out
as it's made into diamond?
Let this be for something.
Oh, let this be for something.
If I'm to be crushed--
and I am crushed--
I am utterly crushed,
I am brought very low--
Let it turn me into diamond.
But oh, how it hurts.
Let it turn me into diamond.


  1. You express your feelings so beautifully.

  2. amen
    it has to be for something, something even more beautiful than what was. How can that be?

    No idea.

    I really hope god does not abandon what was started.
