Fault Lines

there are fissures
running through my heart and soul
like the fault lines
through a piece of marble
that make some view it as worthless
but a great sculptor
sees and knows
and with a gentle and skilled hand
uses what others see as fault
to bring forth the perfection
the otherwise unseen inner beauty
this artist shaped by other artists
stronger from the polishing
the hammering away
rough treatment
by loving hands
that can't fix the fault
because there is nothing to fix
when that which some see 
as the problem
is really the solution
and the fault lies not with the stone
but with the viewer
