flawless

Her humble
Beauty hiding
Behind her
Flawless facade

Fools foolishly
Tried to climb
Over walls well built,
And found themselves falling

Men left lamenting
If it was her
Or the facade
They couldn’t get over.

diamonds

You must relieve

Some of this pressure

You put on yourself,

We are not the earth

And this pressure will not

Turn us into diamonds;

Under such a weight

Humans are destined

To crumble.
