Food For Thought - Poem by louis rams

As we get older we tend to search for what will complete us, such as love, companionship
Friendship, , communication, a hug, a kind word.
The thing is that when we are young we do not think about getting old, or getting ailments
That we never had before such as loss of strength, loss of memory, loss of sight
Loss of hearing and so much more.
We feel infallible and nothing can hurt us, but we do get older and with age comes
Many things that we drag around like a chain.
We look at our parents and at times tend to ignore them and their complaints of pain.
There are more things going on now than ever before, with all the technology
We can go on a computer or cell phone and get information so much easier than ever before.
In doing and using this technology we can learn about a person and even destroy that
Person and their livelihoodor shut down a company s system with the touch of a finger.
It seems that it is like the movies where robots become the masters of humanity.
Tell the people that are in your life that you love them before it is too late.
We will not be around when you need us or a listening ear or eyes to see your tears.
