The journey and message of a diamond

A dark place was my home
Among many a hard dull rocks
Placid stream over slimy stone
And often it used to mock-

"I'm beautiful and loved
Dearly loved and cherished
Though at times beheld with fear
For when the diamonds fall
From the highest call
In my joy all may perish"

to be free, then, was my desire
fulfilled when they visited my abode
With many a machine and wire
And took me to the road

That led to several machine
With the sole purpose to refine
And treat them till they shine,
Oh my! I looked divine!

And now i sit on a perfumed hand
Often stared at by two blue spheres
i observe the children on the sand
To find a face with the stream's sneer

"I promise you'd be discovered
And with your kind of machines
You'd be covered
As they polish away and refine
Till from within you shine

But oh son of Adam!
Don't forget the duty of thine

And waters with depths unfathomed
Are best left alone with time
