Broken Beauty


Can one see a beauty?
Beauty can be perceived, not seen;
For one person might call something a beauty; the other sees it ugly.
A broken statue can be discovered as a treasure to an expert,
But it can be seen as rubbish to untrained amateur.
Is there a beauty in a broken stained soul?
To her, who owns the soul might think naught;
To God Who had created her soul has long besought
To restore her soul to its pristine original image.
Is it ugly useless waste which should be thrown away?
Absolutely not, for God still regards a broken soul as His unpolished beauty;
And that is why He now sends His art conservator/restorer - me ;)
Is it kind of scary?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
