CUT TO SHINE

Life discovers us, how we are
along a measure of age
as we proportion to the end
defining the covenant of living.
We express, in each action
the chemistry of our makeup
integrity of purpose, firmness
of eternal resolve, brightness
cleanness in quality hardness
of hope, density of structure
to confirm grace of pressure
a diamond rendered fine
in friction, cut to shine
luster in buffeting and buff.
