Dirt Over Diamonds


They crush me for them.

They see what they want to see.

Dirt over diamonds.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Haiku Poem No. 212, 12/31/2018 –

The harder you work at your dreams, the further you go. The further you go, others will hate on you and crush you. All they see of you is dirt. Ignore them. They can crush the dirt for us. It is where we grind and hustle anyways. Focus on creating value for others, the diamonds underneath the dirt. Only those who appreciate the value you give them, will see and feel the diamonds!
