Hands

By Lyon Kim, age 10, New York

 

Peach to tan
Palm to back
Bruised and cut
Flexible and strong
My hands
My fist looks like a tan rock
With bumps and wrinkles
Wrinkles that you will see on a scrunched-up, disgusted face
Dirty and short contour nails
The pores on my hands
Are replaced with tiny dots
Triangles and rectangles half the size of a millimeter, decorate my knuckles
As if trying to entertain me
Every day my palms sweat
So much that they are a hot water dispenser
Cuts pain me
As well they show how hard I work
