Diamonds - Poem by Kaity Desrosiers

When I had nothing,
And held out my hand to help you,
You kicked me in return.
Yet, I stayed humble.
When you mocked me,
I stayed loyal.
When you questioned my ethics,
My principles abound.
When I held out my hand for help,
You hesitated.
When I had the last of my $20,
I treated you.
For remember!
When you lost all your diamonds,
I offered you my home to stay,
I fed you the last of my loaf of bread,
And my beating heart.
