It takes love

Fiercely passionate

Patient and kind

In a world

Breeding hate

And mistrust

Making love

A casualty

Of childhood

We must fight

To mine diamonds

From our hearts

Every single day

We can’t give up

In our pursuit

To discover

To uncover

The gems hidden

Under the pain

And anger

And we must

At the very least

Share the wealth

Of what we find

So that love

Can one day

Be what saves us

From digging

All these graves
