Alzheimer

He was lying on the
road among the beggers.
His blank eyes
couldn't answer.
A paaser-by asked
his name, sensing
his class- - - -
what's your address sir?
'S-i-r? No, no I'm not sir, brother,
father or anything.'
'What's your name?
N-a-m-e? What's name? '
'I'm a man, m-a-n! '
but, I can't spell, man.
His voice was broken
and replies are more broken.
Arriving at sunset point
he has lost his keys
of locked memory.
He was suffering from
Alzheimer!

    He was lying on the
    road among the beggars.
    I saw a similar scene recently in my travels. I saw this person lying on the roadside in the morning. Then lying in the same position in the evening. Beautiful poem bringing reality to the forefront. Thank you.

    Alzheimers is a terrible disease. not only for the person but the family too

    Alzheimers one could argue is a disease in which the soul leaves the body before it is ready to let it go. Good poem, horrific ailment in which there is no cure.

    Poignant. Alzheimer is a dreadful disease. A feeling of living dead comes to mind when a patient of Alzheimer is seen.
