The Gravity Of Blood - Poem by David Whalen

The gravity of blood
Holds tight the satellites
Of family and
The ties that bind

Free will… be an illusion
An orbit of confusion
For the gravity of blood
Tis not random… nor tis blind

In the end we're naught but copies
Cast afar in the familial flood
Rejoined anon by the cosmic eddies
And the gravity of blood

    A fine analogy - the gravity of blood - and I think an accurate one. Blood draws to it's own, strongly. Well written. (Report) Reply
