The Admirable Mo Poem by Francis Duggan

The Admirable Mo

Rating: 4.8

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
A paraplegic due to a motor accident forty years ago
Now in his early sixties the admirable Mo
Into his fourth decade in a wheelchair
Yet you never will hear him say life is unfair
An only child his mum and his dad in the cemetery lay
He is all alone in the World today
Without any children or a partner or wife
Yet he does not feel he is hard done by life
Into his sixth decade he lives on his own
Braver than he is of i have not known
Life's toughest challenges he has had to face
Yet on his happy features of sorrow no trace.

Life's toughest challenges he has had to face Yet on his happy features of sorrow no trace... //.... A heartfelt tribute to a self sustained soul who is confined to a wheel-chair for the last four decades without parents or friends in this self-centered world. Thanks.
