Your hands

Your hands

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

Inspired by conversations with Ana Sophia, among other things ...

"
Your hands,
are nothing like
the ones that
came before.

Your hard,
is not one
from the in,
but from the out.

You are a man,
born of earth
and dirt and
work and pain.

Maybe that is
what I need,
to teach me
to love again.

They are hard to find and hard to come by if we aren't looking in all the right places. I love this line

You are a man,
born of earth
and dirt and
work and pain.

It's something about people who have been exposed to hard life make's them treasure the most important. Well expressed KLGoode :)

Being familiar with your journey, this has an especially poignant depth for me. I love the way you use "hands" to symbolize the way we often measure a man by what he does with (or how he uses) his hands. Stanza 2 is a brilliant life observation stated in an eye-popping way . . . one of your most stand-out word craftings that I've read lately. Here's hoping you & yours are cruising into a smooth 2019! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Very rugged and serene at the same time, enjoyed reading this. I didn't understand the 'your hard' part, did you mean you're hard?

No, I meant your hard, as is the hardness projected on the outside is not the truth of the inside.

Beautiful poem with beautiful and heartfelt sentiment.

'Your hard is not one from the in, but from the out.' So true that what lies beneath is what really matters.

Thanks so much. I appreciate your stopping in.
Very good use of words. You said a lot in so few sentences. We need people strong enough to make us stronger. I like the tone and the need in the outstanding poem my friend.
