Look, poem by Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris at Spillwords.com

Look at my hands
what’s happened there
I guess it is due
to wear and tear

My knuckles once strong
and oh so smooth
Now are wrinkled – gnarled
and can barely move

Wrists once shapely
and quite petite
Today are swollen
needing lots of heat

Skin across my arms
was soft and tanned
Resemble now a label
on an old tin can

Head and shoulders
knees and toes
I once could bend
and touch all of those

Look at my hands
as they are now
They’ve served me well
and made me proud
