Log or Ruby?
I have a scarlet , i have a dark.
Scarlet may fade , but dark's a mark.
How come that bright is the sapphire..?
Often me is like a log in fire..
One end i have my colour,
One end is ill-lit.
But reality is that mid flame..
Lying in midst of the two ends not to blame...
The ruby is cut and turned to shine.
But the paradox stands for log that burns to ashes-fine..
Both agonize but one gains..
But the poor log cinders and is left in pain...
