Decaying to Shine..!!



Iron when molten is malleable the most-
Cooling thereafter transforming into Hammer!
Rock however; by softer strokes,
Could be chiseled, into an intricate Figurine.

Gold is crafted only when melted,
Burning which gives it- its signature shine!
A decaying vegetation turns into Coal;
Taking the fossils n dead meat alongwith.

I am all magma, immersed in veracities,
The strokes don’t hurt me anymore-
I am waiting for the design to conclude;
Resting for a while; while I turn into a Diamond.

    There’s always that one diamond that sparkles and shines above all others and then becomes the most precious, as you are.
    Another fine diamond in the making. Nicely done.
