My Gem

The deeper I mine

The less I find

Wasting my time

While being kind


The diamonds fly

Out of my reach

So hard I try

And act like a leech


The fly and they fly

Because of my past

So they say goodbye

And the skies overcast


I dig on

Through all the mayhem

I keep on

Hopeful to find my gem
