Chrystallised Genes


They came together in love,
chrystallised genes.
They did not know,
that a baby might grow
from that intimate night
where passions fuelled without a fight.
Duality emerged so desperate,
two histories separate.
A child had began to form,
so different from the norm.
From humans, two of a kind,
with shared, brilliant mind.
Their bodies created something,
a person not a nothing.
Ten tiny toes and feet,
struggling to compete,
in that wilderness of places,
called earth, full of empty spaces.
Perhaps they should not have done it,
their child may not have wanted it.
If only they had known
what they both had sown,
for their need to be in the future
for their need to create culture.
Chrystallised genes,
selfishly they leaned.

    Love, passion and intimacy.........................................yielding something, something not really wanted. Yet, that is how the world is formed. Nice way to squeeze it in a poem. Well done, Susie! (Report) Reply

    Love is never-never selfish yet lust of that intimate night- in search of pleasure ignorance- baby is created- that not to be created- man purposes God disposes nice one (Report) Reply

    Chrystallized is a misspelling; perhaps it is deliberate as it serves its purpose of grabbing attention...Yes, indeed, lovers are often selfish and short sighted; they don't foresee the consequences of their actions.. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
