Hands: A Poem


Erin is a writer and content creator from Georgia, United States. She loves coffee, books, and puppies.


I wonder how this world would change,

If instead of pointing fingers,

And handing out blame,

We reached out our hearts,

In lieu of calling names,

Maybe if we were less focused on our hurt emotions,

And walked in the shoes of a different soul's,

Then we could finally see through all the commotion,

That we're all just humans in need of each other,

Craving generosity, harmony, and devotion.

This world of ours needs more people in it that think exactly the way you expressed yourself in this poem. It is lovely!

Etin - A wonderful message.

The other day I heard in a media interview that your Fox media outlet has been instrumental in creating "sides" within your population over many many years.

We are born into our world not knowing how to hate. We only learn how to hate from other people.

Like you mentioned in your poem, we need each other. We need each other's generosity and experiences of harmony.

Peace to You Erin.
