There was a man in a far off land,

He had no eyes, he had no hands, this man.

Told me of visions, of a world he sees,

With his feet he would pick up things.

He spoke of many stories and travels,

Lessons of worth from a man in a far off land.

There were no tears or anger of his losses,

A smile for gifts bestowed upon him.

He was not weak, body or mind,

He was a man from a far off land, a kind man.

He had no want of things so many,

What he valued was simple, not riches of plenty.

  1. Beautiful. Humility cannot be dressed up as you have shown In the deliberate & carefully orchestrated tones. The great worth of anyone is gained along the path walked many times until it must rest with weary feet. 💚🌹This is a very good piece, thankyou, for look how you stirred emotion in me.
