Oscar Pistorius

As the whole world did watch
With oh so great an anticipation
Came a man with two artifical legs
Named Oscar Pistorius

The first double amputee man
With two special legs
Gave to us one, and all
A run in which did
Go down in as the first
In Olympic History

Although he didn't win
He did touch and show us all
That even with his disabilty
Made him no different than us all

So if ya think
Ya got it so rough, and tough
Just remember a man
That did show us all

That nothing, no nothing
Is that tuff or impossible
And that the words no or can't
aren't an option
To be replaced by the words of
Yes, Yes we all can

Just like the man named
Oscar Pistorius
