What story on gravestone tells the story of a man who over time learned as he got older to not worry about the world but only himself?
Sorry this is near impossible I know, but worth a shot.
When I was younger I heard a poem or story that was paraphrased so I dont know it exactly but I'm hoping to find the true story. I just am searching with paraphrased, possibly incorrect information about it!! All i have is what its about.
Im almost certain it is read as if someone is reading a gravestone that the person who died wrote the poem. it starts by going into the idea that when he was a child or young man he wanted to save the world and then each time in his life his desires to help the world get smaller and smaller going from world to his own family...maybe....but i think at the end it says i now lay here and have finally realized that all i needed to worry about was myself.
the story is pretty obvious but in trying to find it without anything to search for is impossible!!!!
