RDP Wednesday – INSTINCT
Written on our bones-
the fear of snakes
the taste for revenge
tribal loyalty, greed and the urge to
make as many copies of ourselves as we can-
babies as they are called in polite circles.
Written on our bones
all of the times we have abandoned ourselves to our insticts
let them run wild like ill trained dogs
off the chain for the first time
thirsty, starving, wanting more
racing blindly from one strange street to another
until we collapse
on a road, in a yard far away from home where our chain is waiting
for us to return

Sometimes I fear that so many bad traits we humans have are just baked in… Do we have any freedom to make the decision to change?
I believe so, and I write some morid stuff.
