squeeze me hard enough

3 Oct

if you squeeze me hard enough

i might become the diamond you desire

instead of this rough piece of coal

smelly, hard, and black

a fossil fuel

if you squeeze me hard enough

but you can’t

your strength is not nearly enough

you will only succeed in hurting yourself

while i remain hard and ugly

a lump

given to children on Halloween

as a joke

if you squeeze me hard enough

though

maybe one day

you will discover the gem

that i am
