We are the stuff of stars

Tarot reading by Kala

We are the stuff of stars

We are the stuff of stars
and trees and mud.

We are grand and simplistic,
elegant and base,
a collection of genetic messages
and electric pulses.

We are our ancestors.
We carry their experiences
latched onto our DNA.
A muddle of stories
tucked into our ancient brains.

Andwe have will,
will to choose not to repeat
their mistakes.

But can we change
from Cain to Able?
Can we change from
pessimist to optimist?

Can we fight against our hard wires?
Rewrite our messages?
Change our brain?
Change our fate?

We are, after all, the stuff of stars.
We can grow as trees grow.
We are buildable as mud into a vessel.

If we can find our will
maybe,
just maybe,
all is possible.
