Based on a picture of a starving man my English teacher showed in class while working on a lesson about imagery. He looked beaten down and worn out but his hands were filled with strength.

His eyebrows scream for wax

His beard yearns for a razor

But his hands, shivering and shaking with old age,

Signal strength


His face calls out for soap

And maybe a few gallons of water

His beard full of grey shows wisdom,

And his hands signal strength.


The bunch of hunters didn’t gather anything to munch on

He wonders what will come next

His stomach growls, rawr, like a lion stalking prey

But his hands,

His hands signal strength
