Mismatched Hands

Sometimes I wonder who owned my right hand
Were they kind? Did they do loving things with it?
I guess I think that way about most of my body
The doctor picked and chose each part...who knows why
My right hand has fingers that are long and spidery
With nails that are grow easily longer and stronger
Than my left hand... Which is completely different
It's much smaller than my right and stronger too
There's callouses that I can't seem to get rid of
Nails that can only grown to a short, blunt length
There's hair on the knuckles that grow noticable dark
They couldn't be more different from each other
Why didn't he pick one pair instead of this? Could he not decide?
Why both? Were they damaged somehow? They're so strange
The rest of my body I can ignore much more easily
I don't see them so up close as often as my hands
Would or could I learn the fate of the previous owners
By going to an old palm reader... Would that even be safe
It's not possible to ask the doctor who they were
So I just sit here and stare at the lines of their palms
Trying to move them at the same time... A failed attempt
They've always move at different speeds from each other
One fast and one slow both moving with an unspoken skill set
Ambidextrous to the max, eh? Each must've previously dominant
I spend too much time looking at them together
Lost in comparing them and the two people they came from
They are my hands and I'm grateful to life through them
May the ghosts of their previous owners guide me
