We take everything for granted
Until that dark moment in life
When something is lost in an instant
Something as simple as words
Trapped inside your mind
You grasp for meaning
You recognize the same
However, it does not come
A dark cloud consumes language
Dissecting sentences into gibberish
Sadness turns to frustration
Will I ever be the one I used to be?
Connecting the thoughts to speak, but the words don’t match. Learning to talk at 60 can have a devastating effect on your mental state. Frustration soon turns to depression. Such is the case with my brother and many others who have had a stroke that effects language skills.
