I expected to already have an acrosstic for the word crystal, but upon checking I found no such page existed. The image I came across was very enticing though, so an acrosstic came almost naturally.
Crystals are funny, they create order as they grow. Ordinary materials grow in a disorderly fashion. The same goes for people: some grow in a disorderly fashion and achieve almost nothing, where others discern their environment on their own, and determine their crystal-like growth on all inputs they receive.
