What Cannot Be Purchased (My Beautiful Disaster)

What Cannot Be Purchased (My Beautiful Disaster)

A Poem by DDave
"

. the epitome of resiliency (survival under pressure)

"
what cannot be purchased
is strength from great pressure
what can only be earned
why diamonds remain beautiful
what always takes time
what it means to survive a crucible
a product of disaster
and great pressure
what cannot be purchased
a true heart made of diamond
what can only be earned
the true heart of a human
    the epitome of resiliency

This is a lovely poem. I enjoyed the way that you were able to connect each stanza with a rhythm. It was simple and practical, not to mention impressing.

A bit of advice (if you don't mind) :
The closing seems a bit dull. I'd love to see a more creative approach

Other than that, it was lovely.

Thank you... I hope it motivated you a little bit too.
I hate to sound conceited but this reads so much like me. I only harden under pressure which I must say has been tremendous on the café in recent past :)

A great poem.

This poem and that video in the description just slapped me in the face with a memory of my dad always saying “good” when he saw a problem that could result in a better solution.

I like the way it reads and definitely enjoyed it!
