MS Pairs with Aging

Our understanding
MS gerontology,
a pressing issue.

In parsing between
normal aging and MS,
is it just the plaques?

Can we determine
whether each process affects
mutual progression?

Help on My Journey

I whisper for help
as lesions of doom betray
my former life plans.

Fellow travelers
on my life’s unforeseen path
grant community.

The sadness of loss
experienced and to come
becomes bearable.

Ode to New Year’s Eves

Others celebrate
the promise of a blank slate.
I watch from afar.

So am I jealous?
I most definitely am.
I want to party.

As I yearn to grasp
hope’s seductive promises,
loss appears instead.
