Ashes Into Diamonds


We have all been hurt.
Bruised and confused, then tossed in the dirt.
And it’s hard to smile after the pain.
But when I see your face.
I began to feel the change.
And I was told you will always feel the same.
We got burned and turned into ash.
Scattered everywhere like broken glass.
Picked up the pieces and took a deep breath.
Said out loud, “I won’t settle for less.”
Never looked to each other for a piece of mind.
But realized that you were mine.
Seems like I wasted my time (with others) to be with you
And now everything’s fine.
