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
