Careful Examination


Examining my hands

The works that I have done

And the things I have yet to construct

The scratches and scars

I hope that I have put them to good use

I hope they haven’t been destructive

There were times I was reluctant to use them

Kept them in my pockets

Examining my hands

At the end of the day

I hope they are still gentle enough to welcome you

And soft enough for you to hold
