A 92 Year-Old Woman Is Bringing Everyone To Tears. This Is Beautiful
September 24, 2015
Wanda B. Goines is a 92 year-old woman who shares great wisdom through the poems she writes. She recited this one to her caretaker, Kate Wilson, who loved it so much she recorded it for the world to hear.
"I looked in the mirror and what did I see, but a little old lady peering back at me. With bags and sags and wrinkles and wispy white hair, and I asked my reflection, how did you get there? You once were straight and vigorous and now you're stooped and weak. When I tried so hard to keep you from becoming an antique. My reflection's eyes twinkled as she solemnly replied, you're looking at the gift wrap and not the jewel inside. A living gem and precious of unimagined worth. Unique and true, the real you, the only you on earth. The years that spoil your gift wrap with other things more cruel, should purify and strengthen and polish up that jewel. So focus your attention on the inside, not the out, on being kinder, wiser, more content, and more devout. Then when your gift wrap is stripped away, your jewel will be set free to radiate God's glory throughout eternity."
