Carve me
Look beneath the surface
And find me underneath

I'm there 
If you look hard enough
See beyond all the points and rough edges

I seem hard
Like granite or marble
Needing sharp tools and hammer

But I'm soft
Like soapstone
A gentle touch will suffice

Smooth out my surface
Find the truth within the stone
And reveal me
