She is a Diamond
Untameable adámas is oft a condradiction:
the hardness of her surface and the softness of her glow,
her value in adornment and inherent rarity,
the way she flashes brilliant when she's held and turned just so.
What makes such a thing beautiful is her imperfections,
a blueprint of her forming that observant eyes might see;
inclusions give character, and her color hues the light,
as if each and every flaw has been tailored thus to be.
She hides it in the rough, but when purposely directed
her nature is to radiate what she herself demands.
To care for her is labor, and to know her is an art.
She shines the most when polished, by patient and caring hands.
