These Hands

These Hands

A Poem by Daniel Gardner
"

Just felt like writing this one. No real reason though.

"























These hands of mine are rough and rugged
They can Protect or destroy
They can create works of Joy
These hands of mine are dangerous in every way
They are tools to break hearts
They are tools of war
They write lovely poetry
They make wonderful motions
These hands of mine can cause a lot of joy
These hands of mine aren't meant to be a toy
They incite ones to suicide
They conduct melodies with my bride
These hands of mine have committed many crimes
They can batter to protect my pride
They can make anyone cry
These hands of mine aren't meant for you
Not even for me
These hands of mine have helped me cheat
What can I say I use my hands everyday
Won't you come and see
That these hands of mine are unique

This is a great piece on the versatility of hands. I found the "Not even for me" line interesting because if your hands aren't meant for me or you, who are they meant for? Also, I liked the "What can I say I use my hands everyday" line because it rhymes and is amusing in its own right. I should certainly hope so.

I love the way you presented your poem at the beginning,
"These hands of mine are rough and rugged
They can Protect or destroy
They can create works of Joy
These hands of mine are dangerous in every way"
It showed vividly how your hands are,
and really set it up nicely

I think you should cut out the last line though,
we know your hands are unique because you have described them so well,
that and I think the line
"Won't you come and see"
would leave the reader with a nice thoughtful ending.
Just an idea though!

Great Poem!!!

They conduct melodies with my bride


These hands of mine aren't meant for you
Not even for me

Won't you come and see
That these hands of mine are unique

You know what else you use everyday? Your mouth, but it wouldn't be possible without your brain to tell you what to do or your heart beating.
Yeah I know, random, but it felt smart until I typed it. I like it, it made me think and Iike it.
