Alzheimer's The Slow Death


The human brain,
Is like a tree upside down.
Branches spreading out,
From limb to limb,
First the limbs go,
Then gradually, the branches die.
Breaking off
Leaving no signal to the brain,
The light turns off.
With no memory,
With no mobility,
No motion,
Slowly,
The body fades, and gradually dies.


They're now saying coconut oil and fish oil are reversing signs of early Alzheimer's Disease

    This is a very interesting poem. Alzheimer's is very
    debilitating disease. Of course there are treatments
    with advanced medicine that can help alleviate some
    of the symptoms of this disease. Hopefully one day
    they will find a cure with research and more research.
    A good write. (Report) Reply

The hour yet bears for thee and me
