Your Hands

Your hands are like gold
They have even touched my soul
Your hands are really priceless
They can give breath to the lifeless

Your hands are like the sand
In the hourglass of life’s command
I’m not sure if you really understand
All of the power inside of your hands

I hope that you don’t mind that I shared
The secret of how your hands heal the impaired
I wish that your hands could wipe away my tears
And touch my heart when it fights my fears

I just hope that those around you can appreciate
And recognize that your hands are great
Before its too late and your hands are no longer here
Living eternally in the memories we hold dear

My name is Halim Flowers and I am an author, poet, blogger(CriminalU.co), and at-risk youth advocate. I have been incarcerated for 18 years, since I was 16 years of age for aiding and abetting a felony murder in a case where I was not the shooter and the person charged as the gunman had his case dismissed and was never tried for this offense. I know it sounds crazy but it is my destiny for now and I embrace. My passion in life is learning and helping to enlighten and inspire others, especially helping to develop the character and lives of young men. I was featured in an Emmy award winning documentary about my experiences as a child at the adult D.C. Jail titled "Thug Life In DC"(See Thug Life In DC at YouTube) and I have authored nine books in the genres of self-help, prisoner reform, juvenile justice, memoir, and poetry(See Halim Flowers at Amazon.com). I very contrite for my past criminal offenses and seriously committed to helping our youth to understand "Victim's Impact" and breaking the "school-to-prison pipeline".
