I have musicians hands.

Always moving.

Always straining.

Long, thin, spindly, spider hands.

I love my hands.

They are the one part of me that only creates.

They make music and words and art.

My mouth makes music, but it also makes sentences that hurt people.

My hands don't hurt. My hands create.

I love the way they look when I'm playing an instrument.

They look right and natural.

They look like they were made for that.

Made to create.

They're kind of worn down and they're big for my size.

I have hands as big as some of my male friends.

I'm 5 foot 1 and a girl.

I love my hands.

They make me proud,

And they've never done me wrong.
