So What!? - Poem by Ruth V. Marshall

SO what if you are 80 and legally blind: but still see shapes &
shadows if the light is kind. So what if to hear you must wear a hearing aid: you are wheelchair
bound but still do not need a maid. So what if there are barriers along the way: dwell on the many tasks
you do perform each day. So what can I do that many others can not: I can say Lord give me
strengths whatever my lot. I have no problems, I turn them over to Him: He strengthens me when
I fall down and all seems dim. So what if your youth is gone and old age you meet: time to tap old
memories and think what a treat. So what if I do not measure up to your rules: my goal in life is to
become one of His jewels.
