I WASTE AWAY IN THE COMPANY OF DIAMONDS

If you crushed my body
It would precipitate
Diamonds
They would fall
With breaknecking urgency
On hard concrete
Hail from pale white bones
Destruction from innocent glitter
It's so easy to conquer children
Using stones
They fall with me
Jewels dusted with drying laughter
We fall into the stifling pot
Of Society
And evaporate as chalk dust
Sprinkled black from your ashes
We are shrewn
With the Pixie promise
Of Freedom
We are dead
They corrupted us
With fingers pointed
HYPOCRITES


The author's comments:
I wrote this about how children are so innocent and nonjudging but then society molds them as they grow into what it wishes, I find this a depressing
fact. Sometimes I think life would be so much easier if we were all kids again.
