Glass

Sand melts, molten solidifies

But does not crystalize.

It keeps transparent, functioning

as a lens, aiding those who cannot see.

Magnifying, so details are uncovered.

Wrapped up in a frame, enabling those in to escape,

 

Or those out, to peer in.

Discovering things not present on the surface.

Allowing exposure to hidden secrets.

Gaining access to the vulnerable.

 

The brittle see-through substance

Can reveal too much, fracturing.

 

But broken windows do not always shatter,

Cracks can cause crevices,

But the glass can remain together.
