My hopeful hands

Translation from South African Sign Language into English

Too many thoughts went through my mind
Words, words, words, and too many words
Feelings, emotions, they make me think
But, I look at my hands for a hope

My hands hold each other
I won’t give up
Salvage
But, I look at my hand for a hope

Everyone is speaking
The ears are being nagged
The mouths are talking
But, I look at my hand for a hope
