THE IRONY OF MY LIFE

Madhulika Bhargava 2006 (Uttar Pradesh)



The day I broke into thousands of pieces,
I decided not to provoke the fire in furnace.
But the world cannot see me dancing in joy,
They broke it again like the mirrors they destroyed.

They were selfish but I was pure as coal,
They were liting the fire to burn me from core,
They wanted the diamonds as glorious as my heart,
So they left me in the mines,till I broke apart.

I was left in the dark to show my shine,
They cut me like a bark,to make jewel for their lives,
I went through so much,but I never complained
Cuz I knew I was hard and they need so much to break.
I knew I was exceptional and they won't find another
So I became the one precious like no another.

And now they show me as a symbol of grace,
Magnificent, Incredible they thought their face .
But I know that ferocious look in their eyes,
As they keep in a box to save for their lives.
