    The complexity of a man’s hand
    Is a mystery I’ll never understand

    For the same hands that caress
    Can also cause so much duress

    I have seen them uplifted to pray
    Asking the almighty to light his way

    But I’ve also seen them slap my face
    And subject me to so much disgrace

    Making me not want to run the race
    Yet they have also take me to outer space

    Had me seeing shooting stars of pleasure
    Taking me to ecstasy beyond measure

    In man’s hands lies the essence of his soul
    For therein is the residence of his control

    A man’s hand can commit murder
    Or be the tools of a gentle lover

    With them he could take you to heaven
    Or have you wishing to finally get even

    Through them he defines his resting place
    As he handles the problem he has to face

    A man’s hand are concept I’ll never comprehend
    But I’ll hold on to a man’s hand to the very end


    Dedicated to a friend who does need his name mention because he knows

    There's an old saying:
    When someone does something good ...no one remembers,
    when they do something bad ...no one forgets!
    Nice piece poet

    this is the back and forth we do

    this poem encompassing life

    because the can be placed anywhere

    how can something that can do so good can do so bad

    it's about understanding polarity

    and the percentages

    hang in there poet

    stay positive

    don't let the down

    bring you down
