Play the music not the instrument. -Author Unknown


I am running and running
All around me are black-and-white photos
Images from the past
I don't know where I am.
I think I've seen these images before
Is that Nana? Is that my first car?
Is that my sister? Is that my birthday party?
Yes, and these are memories
Why can't I leave?
Where is the marked exit?
Why are these memories slipping away?
Is it because I am old, ancient?
My family has died, leaving me in the asylum
Everyone, alive and dead, is waiting for me to die.
I feel very alone
Is it because I can't remember my own name?
Is that Nana's photo or someone else?
I knew a second ago
It is all slipping away, and it is frustrating.
Maybe it is Alzheimer's
Or I'm just lost in thought

Friends are like glue, they always stick by your side.

I really like the essay although it's kinda dark. It's very thought provoking.
