Mining For Diamonds

It feels good
to release
Even in its
smallest measure
Like mining
for a diamond
One piece of earth
at a time
The struggle
is strong
and burdensome
will sometimes prevail
You'll often feel
undone and spent
Begging to dig
no more
Barely scratching
the surface
before it feels
you've already dug
too deep
No ladder seems
long enough
or strong enough
to stable you 
to ever climb out
Moments of rest
are needed 
to gather the strength
you know you'll need
to begin again
