Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than hands?

-Ernest Gaines.

My body is a planet
Plain and simple, that's a fact
My feet form the mountains
While toes make up the peaks
My hands produce the plants
And fingers grow their roots
My chest becomes a rolling plane
Covered with streams of sweat
While the stomach is a barren desert
That gently rumbles and sighs
My legs are soft steel beams
Holding up a building so tall
Hair is like swaying reeds
Rippling in a silent breeze
My heart, at last, is the center core
That keeps this planet going...

THIS IS TALENT! The correlation between body parts and land is so unique and I'm stunned. Keep writing for sure. I hope that this will be published.
