If Hands Were Meant For Holding

If Hands Were Meant For Holding

A Poem by DriDri

If hands 
were meant for holding, 
why do we, curl anger creased fingers 
into fists and fight wars 
we have no chance in winning. 

Why do we use our minds 
to shut people out, 
instead of venuring to open doors, 
between the wars that have been going on 
I am beginning to see 
if hands were meant to hold 
it is weapons they shall hold 
bodies they shall bury 
graves they shall mold. 
for each fist made 
is a fight of which I grow weary 
if hands were made to hold 
why isn't it peace that they carry?
