DNA

You hate me
for the mistakes of my grandfather
that I carry in my
mighty DNA
of numbers,
but this is me,
with my body
and voice,
and the green-ness of my eyes,
talking to you
in a voice of a girl,
poetry of a woman,
and wisdom of a human
that married my grandfather
(that you hate so much),
but you love me,
right?
So don’t judge the book
by it’s blood
-y
stains.

    1. BEAUTIFUL ~ye so thoughtful with me, it’s so refreshing in comparison to the general world… so, thank you sincerely for asking how I am. I’ve been fairly well and enjoying every day the best way I can. I do hope your holidays were wonderful for you dear heart. Keep writing your heart for hearts like mine. Lovingly Debbie

    2. I always wonder how you are. I know im MIA in your blog, but very often a thought about you crosses my mind. I feel some very warm emotions towards you, sisterly.

  1. Hating you instead of the actions of another is the product of an insecure mind that is incapable of deeper compassion and empathy, and unable to forgive because of what they see in themselves. You deserve better than hate, you deserve love like everyone else does, and you deserve the person who will love you despite the sins of the past!

    1. We spend our lives looking for appreciation from the others. As if we yearn for them to validate our existence. And when we find that one person that can do all those things without judgement, then we know that our life has a whole new meaning, not related to our past or any influences we were facing.
      Thank you sweets, you always know the right words.

  2. thank you for your compliment of my poetry! i am quite happy to now be introduced to yours! looking forward to reading more. 🙂

    1. Thank you darling… Its just that sometimes people are pointing fingers at certain parts of my life that i have no wish to be responsible or judged for.

    2. Than those people should not be in your life, why should you be judged on others deeds, judging books by their covers when they don’t take time to read… Hugs sweet, stand strong, you are not your relatives..but you xx

    3. Oh dear I don’t know about intelligent – perhaps just wordly? 😉 and thank you, I am glad what I say makes you feel that way, your comments on my work make me feel good also. 🙂 x

  3. wow, what a gorgeous poem! you work always reminds me of the beauty that can be found in our power and in our darker places! Happy New Year to you! x

    1. Oh, yes. And, as synchronicity had me in its clutches (again), I had been writing on the ‘thing’ — the convoluted ways that love and hate, pleasure and spite dance in (family) circles. And the ways that ‘close blood’ tends to pose the most vicious threats to its own mixtures.

      But I like the way you said it better.

    2. Im still looking forward to read your ramblings on the subject. An inquisitive owl like me cannot stop but wonder about other people’s opinions.
