Admixtures Shape Our Lives



Our genetics
shape our lives
in a foregone conclusion.
This fated supremacy
rules all human infusion.
Our environs
shape our lives
in a fostering manner.
This puissant influence
dictates all human banner.
Our selections
shape our lives
in a circular fashion.
This dynamic transmittal
reflects all human passion.
Our admixtures
shape our lives
in a convoluted way.
This manifold amalgam
commands all human array.
