Diamond in the Flames

Her life was drowning her in pain
No more abuse could she sustain
She took a match and lit it up
Hoping the pain would finally stop
The flames began to eat her dress
For grievances that weren’t addressed
She knew that now the end was here
Her heart was thus consumed by fear
So in her panic she tried to shout
When suddenly the flames went out
And in the darkness she saw a light
Then felt a breeze that brought delight
She heard a voice from up above
Whose gentle tone was full of love
That said to her, my little girl
You are to me a precious pearl
I know that men can be so cruel
Like wolves with bloody fangs that drool
I know that life can be so tough
For you’re a diamond in the rough
One day these wolves will pay the price
I’ll trap them all like cowering mice
One day you’ll shine like a glowing star
And all shall know who you are
One day will come when you’ll be free
Hold on to hope for that’s the key.
