As a Gemstone Facet

There is a road I’ve come to know
It is largely gloom and dark and shadow
But at the end, I’m told there is light to bestow
Whether it be premonition or afterglow

Do we walk, head hung into this fate?
Do we grip and cling to cargo and useless freight?
Do we make peace with memories that all concatenate?
Or, as a gemstone facet, do we shine wherever we are
And know there is no such thing as a light that will sate

Enjoy my writing? Buy me a coffee 🙂
