The Three-Legged Fella


The three-legged fella poetry is about an individual’s worth. Despite the fact that he had nothing, his third leg inspired others.

The three-legged fella

That fella pale and wet;

Drenched in the pool of his dry tears,

Overpowered by the shadow of hopelessness,

Beautified in rags; praised by the onlookers.

That old man was condemned by the past;

Those moments he refused to learn,

While there was the grace of a future harvest,

And the time seeks favour from all and sundry

That three-legged fella curved like the smoked fish;

Shivering in the sun like a wet cat;

Feeding in the abode of loneliness,

Fishing out grace from the void street.

That man supported by an extra leg-

Designed by the generosity of a neighbour,

Furnished by the guilt of his childhood,

Controlled by the truth of his pain.

That man who still lives among us,

Praying for the part that leads to the beyond is seen quickly.

That man, that three-legged fella,

If not dead tonight, still have something to offer.

I write a lot, on everything and anything. I am that ordinary guy with a whole lot of good to offer. I love art, music and poetry.
