Sometimes Diamonds are Survived by its Crime




Centered a wisdom is seen to sparkle
Lighting eyes 
Engaged in a timeless mine
Into darkness creeps a christening light
Like the diamond that glistens on a new bride

They say Diamonds are a girl's best friend
Drudgery follows tainted hands
Grime filled the slaves run the camp
Of a hardened disturbing means to end
Breaking wills that survive the ravages of time
Sometimes Diamonds are survived by its crime

(For the countless slaves that worked the mines to produce the finest diamonds that funds violent conflicts)
