It was a history lesson
so they peeled the dried skin off the rocks
and found little diamonds made of water
while feeling like thieves.

And before they knew it
they were dark skinned and frail
realizing that beauty didn't mean pleasure
and much to their dismay
hard didn't mean sweet.

Instead of wandering
they had found their mates
and hid away
even though what they were doing
was no secret.

Was it important to see?
Important to hear?

Well, it was
easy to pretend
and to find a stranger
knowing that they weren't a stranger at all.
