Their eyes used to be bright
Their skin used to be tight
Their legs once knew how to leap
Their blemishes used to disappear with just beauty sleep
Their bodies were once strong
They once felt like they belonged
People just don’t seem to understand
The years of story that could be passed through these older ones hands
Each line is a journey from the past to the present
Each wrinkle and spot is the proof of experience spent
Did you ever sit and listen to the stories they could tell?
The truths they could speak?
Memories they know so well?
They’re living gems
Treasures right in front of our eyes
But people overlook this truth
They can never sympathize
They used to be me
They used to be you
They used to be all of us
This much is true
But now they’re stuck within a shell
Though their spirits are just as vigorous as ours
A stiff, weak casing is where they now must dwell
So don’t look at them with pity
Don’t view them as crazy
Don’t hold them to the same level as a child
But give them their dignity

During this hard time we all are having difficulties to some degree. Whether it's educational, financial, or if you have become sick our hearts go out to you and your families.
We would also like to make mention that, during this COVID-19 Pandemic, disinfecting and good hygiene is extremely important right now. And not just for ourselves.
There are groups of people more susceptible to this disease and one of those groups are our older ones. We can all give our older ones that respect by keeping our distance whenever possible and even when we do come in contact we can make sure we are washing our hands and sanitizing surfaces we touch whenever possible.
At our.gentle.truth we have soap especially made and designed for sensitive skin. We use USDA approved ingredients and we never add fragrance to any of our recipes. Rather we use essential oils in our blends that have many benefits.
We have even taken extra measures to make sure all of our products are clean and sanitized before they are shipped right to your door.
Older ones used to be young just like everyone else, so when we hold them to the same regard that we might ourselves we create a better environment for us all.
A gentle and honest environment.
