Musings - Race Memories - Poem by Paul Warren

I once met a person who told me
That we had race memories that we could see
All of the experience our ancestors had
Were locked in a collective memory good and bad

We could unlock these memories from our mind
And experience them again with emotions that bind
I wonder what is locked for each of us
Is it more than pure instinct in such a fuss.

    An educative and inspirational poem. Our subconscious may be storing such race memories probably inherited through DNA etc because in our day today life we do get experiences that may not have rational backing. Some times when we go to a completely alien place for first time, we feel that we know it and have already been there. Similarly some complete stranger appears very near and dear, some times.
    Thanks for sharing a thought provoking poem.10 points.
