Pressure

Forbidden+Luxe+Ash+Nelson

My only consolation — through the crushing, the bending, the breaking — is the possibility of a new thing being done in me.

I am consoled at the prospect that all of this pressure came only to make a diamond. I know that this process relies not on my feelings. I can hate it, love it, be hurt by it or succumbed to it, but the process remains the same.

After the fire comes gold.
