Board Games

When you're young,
your life is like a board game.
Roll your dice,
count your moves to a new square.
This new square has new offerings,
new challenges,
new opportunities,
new forfeits. 
You roll the dice and take your chances!

Old age brings the need for certainties, 
experience questions change.
So you find a square that fulfils your needs,
desires -
and you stay!
And you no longer need those dice so;
you pass them on to your children.
