No Chopsticks In The House - Poem by Joe Rosochacki

With his arms gone
With his ambidextrous lower extremities
China's Got Talent and now the world had seen
What 23 year-old Liu Wei had done.
This young talented pianist performed 'Marriage d' Amour'
On a grand piano with his toes!
Losing two arms by an accident
It some how did not dent
Of being human, not giving up your dream; that's what it meant.
People were brought to tears as they witnessed
The awe inspiring site of this man who articulated his toes intricately,
Who had performed expressively.
He has a great outlook on life even though he his arms were taken by high voltage electricity.
He has endured pain and suffering and strife.
According to Liu Wei,
For people like me, there were only two options.
One was to abandon all dreams, which would lead to a quick,
hopeless death; the other was to struggle without arms to live an outstanding life.'

Hats off to you because you have taught a lesson for the world.
