Noahamen! ...halved reducng unread

Till disease do us part
There are only three diseases
maybe four
may be some more
which we all here are afraid of

one is dementia
second Alzheimer’s
third Parkinson’s
fourth Cancer
fifth and finally
lungs going, going, gone

in no desired order!

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


is stalwart ignorance
of the heart and soul
from these springs forth
the refreshing waters of
Life...Love and hope

of course Prayer helps
(lately I have not...I;m
angry and holding out..
my back is turned..

Psychiatrist will assist

Thank U!

you read mine
i will yours
then you will be first again

as i rest in my lonely drain
alas now not in vain

many who read me
still here remain

I would have been
the world's best

you take me far above
a poetics altar
so i assure you
I shall not be a
