A poet once wrote something that struck me powerfully. May I express the spirit of what he wrote and rephrase it according to my understanding.
The beauty of a diamond such as what is pictured here captivates not only the human sight but the human imagination as well. If we were this diamond, we can still be whispering to those who swoon at our beauty,
“I am not this stone, I am not this diamond, I am the soul that lives within.”
