Wanda B. Goines was 92-years-old when she wrote a poem on growing old and what is truly important in life. The video of her reciting her poem is below, and is so worth a listen.

Aging is not something that all of us are afforded, and it is important to remember that we must cherish ourselves and our lives. No matter how many wrinkles, sags and seemingly unpleasant things may happen to our bodies, it is what is on the inside that counts.

Regardless of our age, there is a jewel inside of all of us. Don’t ever forget to let your kindness radiate from inside, and show gratitude not only to others but to yourself as well!
