Diamond Lover Poem by Tiffany Koch

Diamond Lover

Rating: 5.0


I have never known healthy love
My mother, she was so angry always
I always felt like such a loser
They sent me away
And just like that
I was off and in another world
I felt like such a loser
Then I was left
By my father
My first love
My sanity
My will to go on
How humble we must be to want to live
And how arrogant we are to think it will be worth it
People and loneliness
Who are we really?
Why can we hardly tell how bad we've gotten before it's too late?
Yearning
I want to just go on my merry way
I don't need someone who doesn't even understand happiness
Or respect
Or love
Or honor
Whenever you start looking at life saying, 'how can it all work together? '
You're looking for diamonds over an active volcano
Prepare to be burned

Sarah McLachlan, Surfacing, Full album, You Tube. She is a great singer and lyricist for all of us, but especially for women.

You are not a loser. Quite the opposite. Give a listen to Sarah McLachlan's album ‘Surfacing' beautiful music for some encouragement. Denny

Broken and abusive home is the basic for all sadness and unhappiness, methinks. A child must feel the love and coziness at home. A fascinating poem
