Cubic Zirconium

Because I am strong, forged in
  the pressures of struggle and birth,
  of needing to fight for
  personal worth.
Because I am pure, unblemished
  by color, fault, vice, hurt,
  jealousy, pride. . .
  because I sparkle.
Because I will last this way forever.
Because I will scatter light wherever
  I go, bringing reflection, refraction,
  and brilliance.
Because I like to think I am a diamond.
