Pyrite and Gold
Something groomed and molded to perfection
Seems so flawless on the outside
Like a diamond or a ruby
Sapphire, any precious gem
Yet when you pick it apart and examine each component
That makes up this perfect gem
Because you come to realize
That maybe being pyrite is better than being gold
Cubic zirconia could be more bearable than a diamond
Polished to appear perfect, shine in the lack of light
Glow in the middle of the night
But gold can easily be molded
Pyrite is more durable
So what makes gold so much better?
What drives us all to yearn for the gold?
What drives you?
