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

  1. Oh, is that beautiful! Our hands have so many purposes but then again it simply is to give love with them in all we do. I think someone who has such thoughts has a lot of love to give!
