Inevitability revised

An ancient woman proclaimed
that her time was coming soon.
Medicine, incense, a sick room--
Days are lost to an induced fog.
Only agony was prolonged, not life.
Days passed by, and she was gone.

Death is inevitable

A grandmother no longer around--
aged daughters of broken spirits still trudged on.
Generations from now, an ancient
will prepare to die.
Days will be lost to an induced fog--
her children will try to save her.
