At my age, I don’t think about changing my life

It’s more like how to hang on to what’s left of it

If I did give thought to it

I would like to design my own parents

After thoroughly vetting them first

Their childhood, their parents

As they will become my grandparents

Very important

Do they love each other

As much as they show the world?

Not really knowing if this idea

Is better than pot luck

Two people getting together

Then Fate takes over

Thing is, it is not always kind

Mostly, I believe we cannot change anything…
