The Fable and the Fallacy

Marker,Morse,Perry

        What was once a precious gem, handed down for generations,
        was something to be treasured, but keeping with these
        modern times is now a stone, a rock, a diamond.
        Whose strength surpassed a steel blade.

        Not to worry, a diamond will never break.
        Not to worry, a diamond will never crack.
        Not to worry, a diamond will never split.
        It will, it will, it will sustain.

        Eventually the stone cast a glance,
        which cuts glass and ties and flesh.
        The dust chokes out the sparkle.

        What holds me here is my love for you.
        What holds me back is that I don't trust you with my soul,
        and the sparkle is gone.
