thumbs on the hands

sad, left out to wonder

forming a group, the fingers unite

why have the thumbs been set aside

pretty rings, are all for fingers

beautiful and long

they sway to form many gestures

desirable to be touched by the lovers

they work to brush the soft pink lips

caress a loving face, hold it to kiss

in the meanwhile

the short and the cornered thumbs

sitting to rest, feeling too dumb

they are yet to realize their worth

do they know their part is to inspire

for thumbs up is the gesture we all aspire

going up of them bring a million smiles

fill life with laughter,

make spirits to touch the skies

well! well!

the thumbs are now happy, taking pride

they now have grasped

the PURPOSE of their existence

they now have understood

the thumbs theory

    1. Hey, thanks a ton.. I always wondered of thumbs being not too pretty and being on the sides.. but then this one is something very special and that makes me understand the value and beauty of everything small and big we have in our lives.

      1. Thanks so much! Actually, it was really hard for me to come up with because I’m absolutely terrible at naming anything. XD
