Waiting to Shine

by bryanthomas

I am mute, and inert. I am elusive, and desired.

The weight of a million centuries bears down on me. The pressure is relentless, the temperature stifling, but I go on.

I need oxygen, but I do not breathe. I am trapped, seemingly forever, in this prison of eternal darkness.

I may be captured, if that is my destiny. I will be taken far away from my place of origin.

But that is when I will bloom. I will be cherished, held, touched, caressed... even loved.

And I will shine. Oh how I will shine! For I, am a diamond.
