Smooth and full of youth are the young child’s hands

Inexperienced and not yet tested to completion

Full of valor yet empty of trait

But the elderly hands tell a story of the past

The lines are experience

They are empty of youth but so full of life

There will be peace once

The hands of the child

And the hands of the elderly

Are united

Very true, and quite a lovely poem. It made me very happy, so thanks for writing it.
