You may think that hands are useless,
That they can’t do the impossible things,
Or even the simplest tasks.
So what’s the point of having hands?
Well, I will tell you,
That hands can lead to the greatest discoveries,
Or even to the smallest successes,
Of our daily lives.
They flow across a piece of paper.
They awaken a world unknown to humankind.
They have the soul of a lover,
And a feeling of love is transported to others,
With one single touch.
So, to think hands as useless,
Is to think less of ourselves as human beings.
For our hands define who we are,
And who we are meant to be.
