These Hands

These Hands 

These hands 
have deprived a man of his liberty, 
yet saved a babies life. 

These hands 
helped to drown my troubles 
but put food on the family table. 

These hands 
buried my parents 
and held my new born son. 

These hands 
inspired loyalty 
yet betrayed a trust. 

These hands 
committed sin 
then  prayed for forgiveness. 

These hands  
fought for my life 
and made sweet love. 

These hands 
have written eulogies 
but created poetry. 

These hands 
are human. 
They make mistakes, 
But they are my hands.
