Inspirational Poem About A Positive Attitude

This poem is a mixture of my real idol and a man who is completely the opposite of selfish. This really touched me when I wrote it even though I am only 14!

My Idol


Published: November 2007

A young man age 21 who I will always look up to.
He plays guitar, popular with the girls,
A friend to all, Strong as an ox,
Not fat yet not thin, completely selfless.
Always helping others who happen to be less fortunate than himself,
Rarely discouraged
Always smiling,
Always laughing.
Why does this very average boy stand above everyone else,
And why do I admire him so much?
Because he does all this in life
And carries on.
He never asks why me,
And he never says he's had enough,
Though he has had no legs since the day he was born.

Why can't everybody be like this young man?
