Alzheimer’s Disease


Walking through the dark woods is never simple

Steps are slowed by harsh rough rocks

Running is no longer possible without light

Hands trace trees for a path known

Sharp edges create wounds on feeble flesh

Slow steady feet sink into mud

Mobility and muscle mass has forsaken the journey

Voice is covered by spider webs

Letters dangle waiting to be consumed forever forgotten

Emotions drag through the valley

Extreme exhaustion ends the travelers mind

Clarity is no longer possible
