These hands are ugly.
They are scarred.
Nail bitten.
Callused.
Broken.
Crocked.
Fat.
Shakey.
These hands cannot complete puzzles.
These hands cannot make an herb flourish or a flower blossom.
These hands cannot.


These hands can.
These hands can paint and draw.
These hands can hold on and never let go.
Firm.
Hardworking.
Careful.
Diligent.
Artful.
Able.
They are strong.
These hands are mine.
