Alzheimer Poem about my Grandmother

Posted: Sun, November 10, 2013 | By:



written by Joseph, age 10




The brain starts crumbling like wood on fire

The memories start exploding in the brain that is left

Ying and Yang, nice and violence

Yet not one of them is her



The power of two inside one

The brain gets rewired like circuits malfunctioning
She knows people who deep inside she doesn’t

It is the brain that over powers her


She can hear a fly go by


When we are playing around she thinks we are being naughty 

She calls people things she does not mean

The power of Alzheimer is stronger than her

There is still hope

There is still goodness


We keep her with us

Until her brain shuts down forever
