"The best way to move others, is to be moved ourselves;
words that come from the heart are most likely to reach the heart."

Is This Your Hand by Maggie May Ethridge

is this your hand? that i can
make, ten fingers of brick that
will not break. a beautiful
bridge of finger made shapes,
 
is this your hand? that i can
shake, ten fingers of blood that
will not pool lakes. a beautiful
horror of wound made shapes,
 
is this your hand? that i can
flake, ten fingers of skin that
will not quake. a beautiful
creation of print made shapes,
 
is this your hand? that i can
take, ten fingers of rings that
will not break. a beautiful
promise of heart made shapes,
 
is this your hand?
