Calloused Hands

Monday, May 18, 2020

Calloused hands tell the story of a man 
who held back the daunt lions,
that sent menacing roars through her mind.
His touch, 
confined them to cages.
His soft and steady voice
healed the scratched walls.
Together he and the one he loves
clawed their way from bondage.
After the trying battle,
she reaches out her hand.
He meets it with his own
and lifts her weary body,
to carry them both home.
