Order

Coal into diamonds

Sand to a pearl

We are taught                   that to be pure

You must bow your head under the weight of the world,

 

But I would rather be raw

Than a polished product

Of another’s design.

 

I would rather be alive

Than fossil fuel.

 

I will always knock on walls

 

I will fight with all of the grains of me,

Not to harden in the wrong way.
