Geneology

and the dna trail

Geneology & the DNA trail
might tell us where we have been,
or where we might fail.
 
do you have antibodies
to your
antibodies?
 
do you fight
or flight
a little
or a lot?
 
do you wonder
why you
wander?
 
or stay put
in your chair
at night?
 
Did you ever look
in the rear view mirror
to see where
you have been?
 
Do you seek the messages
in your DNA,
do you believe
we are victims
therein?
 
Can we rise above the protein strands
of fate?
 
 
 
Can we be unique
when not so different after all
than a monkey
or a pig?
 
The DNA
says it all.

  1. ...and given that we are virtualy identical to that monkey or pig, what is that hidden ingredient in DNA which makes us human and conscious (to us) beings?
