Don't give up... rely on luck!
Whatever vise you're caught in, stuck;
do not crumble, hold on tight;
the longest tunnel leads to light...
All that's hardship - all your worry,
are volatile and temporary;
walk the ridge that does exist
between "stubborn" and "persist"...
A diamond and a piece of coal,
chemically, they're "one soul",
made of Carbon - as are we,
the scaffold holding you and me...
Difference is, one did transform,
Heat and Pressure beyond norm
changed the structure, crystalline,
forging resilience like none seen...
That change of structure makes it shine
- in brilliant cut - so very fine;
to even cut it, they need trick,
otherwise no thing could nick
the hardest substance that is known
in this - or any other - zone...
And if you go, should 'diamond' choose,
please, pay attention you won't lose
the only thing of value, true,
your heart and soul, the best of 'you'...
