A human soul is like a glass vase. So fragile, so easy to break. Just one touch, and it can shatter into a thousand shards. So many pieces that not even a lifetime would be enough turns of the clock to meld it all back together.

So instead of being glass...

Why don't we turn our souls into diamonds instead?

After all, diamonds are one of the strongest materials to be found in nature that can be shaped into something beautiful.

Who wants to be seen as glass that can be pulverized with the slightest of pressure, when instead you can be viewed as one of the most durable and gorgeous souls in the world?
I feel like after submitting so much depressing vent stuff that I should post something more...I dunno. Bright? Uplifting?

This is something I want to try for myself. To stop letting shit get to me, and to fight back.

I need to stop being glass. I need to be a diamond now. Even though there are substances harder than diamond, but those aren't seen as something to be worn with pride--like I want to wear my true self instead of putting on a mask like I keep doing.

So...yeah.

Should I stick to my angsty poetic free verse? This really sucks, doesn't it. It's not even a poem, but I don't know what category to put it in.

Why is everything you write just so beautiful? This is perfect. Let's just all get diamond souls so nothing can hurt us anymore.

I like the questioning of the human soul you have put into this writing and I agree with this:)

Diamond...a substance that is just as clear and refractive as glass, but more durable and beautiful.
I think you should do whatever your inner writer tells you to do. After all, these are your thoughts.

It's also really ass-butt expensive. :|

But thank you, I pretty much do just that.

I love the metaphor of diamonds and glass, and I like that you're coming from a more hopeful place this time. :)
