I have two hands, not more

I have two eyes, not more

But I aspire to see more

Beyond my spectrum,

 But capacity nature offers me restricted in store

Yet I have confidence on myself

I can appeal to many at random as long I can ensure my existence 

To make a little effort with difference!

I am a part of many

I wish to be an integral part of them with harmony

I endeavors only to pave the way for facilitating many

I enthusiastically extend my hands to support many with symphony

My hands too follow my command

Which comes from my brain in my errand

I wonder if my hands are so loyal to my brain

Are they too play any significant role to design, develop and configure in brain!

Different people perform different works

Additional values they produce to proliferate and ensure human's supreme status

But different people do possess shape and size of hands

Their neurological configurations too designed to deliver commands

Which enable them to carve a niche in the society they exist and resolutely stands

Some uphold in the social fabric with exquisite skills

Some are focused to malign many without feeling any sense of guilt

The discrimination of mental fabric appears evidently

It too enable to construct hands which is evident to construe ethnicity

But finally it is hands which uphold humanity and protest

 When it faces hindrances posed by only few hands!

With hands we give clap to express ovation

With hands we make gestures to discard any unpalatable notion

With hands we navigate traffic

With hands we disrupt fleet to restrict from any consequence which is horrific

With hands we create paintings and sculptures

With hands we too build fly overs and sky scrappers

With hands we could make storms

Owing to our neuron mechanism which too changes at random

Right hand sometimes proclaims right is might

Left hand claims it is the tool to mitigate majority's plight

But it is ultimate the both hands tendency to build

Complement each other for making positive yield!

Hands could mend souls

Hands could decimate evils and its detrimental roles

Which only bring despondence to many

By using weapons against their own community without any sense of rationality!


We do possess two hands

Left and right with its contradictory stands

Sickle, hammer, bow and gun

All reveal its importance by the assistance of hands

But largely being designed by the brain

Which navigates the human civilization to explore with unique train

With hands we produce bread and cake

But flaring up of confliction starts while we fail to divide its stake!

As Immanuel Kant says The hand is the visible part of the brain. Your thoughtful poem reflects this observation. All the actions you mention start in the brain. I hope I have understood your poem correctly.
