Gamete by Jo Celine

Gamete
oocyte
egg
has a DNA spiral of information about
the entity
from beginning to end.
The configuration and functions
of the exterior and interior
mental capacity
expected lifespan.
As fate or Karma will it
you come fully loaded
preferences
tendencies
notions from previous gene mixes
shuffled to make a particular DNA string
assorted characteristics woven into the strand
unique
a blueprint.

As a woman ages she accumulates experiences.
These produce emotions, waves, good or evil,
throughout the body.
Feelings wash over her eggs
as they happen
for years, before oocyte meets sperm.
The older the egg, the more has been received
to alter the DNA
for better or worse.
The oocyte chooses the sperm,
yang to her yin.
* * *
Living the life.
Love the self enough
to right wrongs
acknowledge a situation
accept the ramifications
let go
move on.

Awareness of intent
will set you free
to enjoy
explore
delight in
be happy
suffer
learn.

Yes you come fully loaded
but in the end
you choose.
