Round and round
doesn’t make it easier
to pull your broken brain away
I don’t know you anymore
I don’t like you anymore
Loyalty keeps me doing
because I promised him
and you can’t help being broken
Time ticks by
Dementia and Alzheimer’s rob people of the ability to understand the world and their lives. Sad. I’ve seen it in my own family.
as do mental illness and brain injury. 😦
Yes. Absolutely correct. Dementia, Alzheimer’s and mental illness all run in my family and I’ve been personally touched with each one.
I’ve been hospitalized for depression and anxiety so I know it’s a game changer.
My heart and prayers go out to all people suffering from some type of brain disease or injury.
Hopefully in both the U.S. there will be more compassion and healthcare options for people. Most of the homeless people I see in the streets and subways suffer from mental illness. Also many are mentally ill Veterans in need of housing and treatment. As a U.S. Army veteran there for the grace of God go I.
“Thank you for your service” would mean more if treatment for PTSD was standard.
True but as you have probably read or heard military money goes for weapons and this new space force as opposed to the needs of Veterans.
I wrote about Alzheimer’s using the Ella Fitzgerald song, A tisket A Tasket.
same kind of idea… Thank for sharing it.
Thanks. I always enjoy your posts.
“Sunrise, Sunset” comes to mind.
I love the paradoxical tension in this.
i try, i try and i try… till i succeed 🙂
