Dive Deep

The Pulchritude of Pressure

Just to let ya know girl

I had to let ya go girl

Now my world has all the diamonds

Now my world has all the pearls.

But don’t be fooled girl

It’s not Hollywood lights

You have to dig deep for diamonds

You have to weep, scrape, claw, and fight.

And pearls don’t just float to the top

You have to dive down to the ocean floor

You have to go where the pressure hurts

Where chests implode and tears slowly pour.

So when you think of me, think of a child

Who hangs on to dreams when mom’s not there

Who hurts so badly in hopes she’ll return

Who craves the peace of answered prayers.
