One Single Expression - Enigma


What is ALS?
all your muscles cease to work
Who gets ALS?
anyone and often
a silent enigma kills

A Tanka for ALS, I hope I used it right. Educate it forward :)

I kept asking my officemates just now what is ALS...and they told it's an Alzheimer's disease? Are they right?

But then, you are right...those inflicted would just die, leaving an enigma to all!

A mysterious illness it is!
