What does your DNA do for you?

Does DNA chain you to your life?

Every G, T, A, C and U spell out your destiny?

Every double helix entangle you in

Both the web of wrong turns taken by ancestors

And the web you’re not yet bent on weaving?

Or the key to liberation?

A ladder twisting you a path

Out of the snakepit of ancestral wounds?

The genetic alphabet to spell out

How you want your life to read?

You decide.
