Our thumbs are more useful than what we think. This is what I learned after an injury during our school's intramurals.

My two stubby thumbs.

What if they become numb?

These thumbs helped me hold.

I used it to mold.

I never realized its importance until it came to this point.

I played and did not care.

I felt the stinging pain on my thumb and on it, I stared.

On both of them, I've got blisters near the joint.

Now I have a hard time.

Picking up, grabbing, and holding things.

I cannot play my favorite game or else I feel the sting.

To my thumbs and to myself, I did a crime.
