These Hands – Mother’s Earning

This is a submission from a blog reader in Florida. Submissions are very welcome.

Mother’s Earning – A Poem

The deep lines of years
Increase evermore each day
Callous places form from time in toil
Creating beauty everyday From daily chore
To inspired trial
They have worked and cleared the way
Spots of age and fragile skin
Replace what once was strong and sure
Used for love and family’s care
Times cruel trick to play
I only pray
Someday I shall have the hands
My mother has earned along the way
