CHRISTOPHER REEVE POEM
BY: LAUREN K. SHEA
8th Grade LaSalle Regional School (Bethpage Campus)
He fell off his horse and that was the case.
Paralyzed, now life is harder to face.
He is down but tries to keep up, its too hard
He is very ill and still alive, everyone thinks
he's going to die.
But no, he is very brave, a man of courage
above all, makes us strong inside and has
encouraged us all in every possible way!
