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.
