Dilemmas of Parenting

A decision is made, or made for you, or made without your knowledge
But somehow, anyhow, your child is here, now, waiting for guidance
And whether you stumbled into parenthood or not
Each choice you make from this point forward
Directs the future of your progeny, their progeny
And your genes beyond
A significant slice of humanity, for a hundred years to come
Affected by the quality of your parenting skills

Suddenly, the gravity of fish-fingers
Weigh concrete on your mind.
