Contracted to Survive

Contracted to Survive

The will to go on is inbred
No matter the obstacles in your head.
From a simple child we evolved, one second
At a time -
Each cell dividing faithfully, molding itself
To a predestined body that thinks and feels
And loves
All over again, as our ancestors did before us.
We never die -
For the living genes inside us have been around
For centuries and centuries, passing on from
One person to another.
They are contracted to survive, and so are we.
Along with them......
History repeats itself....
In more ways than one.....

Patty Apostolides, 2010
