CRYSTALLINE

Once, I was a stone.
Simply shaped,
Dipped in earth tones—
Common.
Yet foundations were built
On the strength of my shoulders.
A lifetime of days
Has etched my surface
Left me lined and faceted—
Peculiar.
What was stone turned to glass,
And therein lies my secret:
Handled carelessly, I’m
Likely to break—
Fragile.
But when caught
In the sun’s rays,
Oh, how I shine!
