End of Life

This one is rather dark. 

End of life.

Actively dying.

Nausea and black vomit. 

Learning about things

I need to know

  and wish i didn't.

There's no way to predict time.

No way to predict number of steps and depth of symptoms.

The only knowns are

  Death will come

  when it is ready.

  And you don't get to know death

  until it arrives.

Morbid thoughts

  or confronting reality?

That is up to the patient and caregivers

  and their current state of mind.
