We start the journey with our parents
for nurturing and first direction.
With rivals then we push and pull,
developing our skills and muscle.
Our idols help us dreams express.
Our allies bring them to creation.
An epithelial horizon
distinguishes what’s in and out
with reference to our physiques.
This is attractively simplistic
and gives a useful intuition
about the bodies we inhabit.
Perceptions gotten through our senses
are further tagged as bad and good
and joined with kindred circumstances
for patterns useful in the future
to increase chances for successes
and thus our actions are adapted.
Constrained at birth by our dependence
on being cared for by our mothers
we cultivated their approvals
yet sought when older to be free.
But now we see through this pretence.
We all have human debt incurred.
The theory of the biorhythms,
while scorned by many disbelievers,
for me still has redeeming features.
It does portray in one display
identity component sums
and how they link to one another.
