The stare is unflinching. Piercing through my skull, skewering the brain and hitting a shrill tone at the base of my medulla. I force myself to not look up, the very thing he wants me to do. I understand the eyes, but cannot recognize them, the face, the shrunken hands, the slow unbalanced walk, the man, my father.

    we shall become him
    our future will ask the same
    we become silent, helpless, like a child
    shakespeare was right
    in the ‘seven ages of man’

    no words can comfort the inevitable
    it’s the only thing thats definite
    yet we are never prepared enough
