‘Too Soon Old’ A Touching, Eye-Opening Poem
The internet is a remarkable tool; you can learn so many things from it, and some of those things are actually true!
I was looking at Facebook this afternoon when I came across a 'Share' that talked about a poem that was written by an old man who (later) died in a nursing home. It's a real poem, but not a real story: it was written by an established poet; Dave Griffith, of Texas (if the internet isn't lying about this, too!).
The poem is entitled 'Too Soon Old', and it reminds us that the elderly were once just like us. Take 2 minutes to read the poem, it will make you think twice next time you encounter a 'seasoned' citizen...
Or, you can watch a home-made, narration in this video..
