Ashes and Diamonds

"So often, are you as a blazing torch with flames/ of burning
rags falling about you flaming, / you know not if flames
 bring freedom or death. /Consuming all that you must cherish
/if ashes only will be left, and want Chaos and tempest..."
- Krystyna
"...Or will the ashes hold the glory of a starlike
diamond... /The Morning Star of everlasting triumph."
- Maciek Chelmicki
