An Eye!

As I drink my cup o' joe this morning, I'm pondering over the fact that we wake up every morning, get dressed, and start our daily routines, without considering how very blessed we really are. What miracles were performed with out our knowledge... things we take for granted? How did we wake up - what carried us throughout the night? Why were we allowed to breathe, sustain, and even given the honor of embracing another morning, another day, another chance to be grateful? But are we?
Do you realize there is an 'all seeing' eye watching over you?
 Here's my take on 'An Eye'

As I reach pivotal times in my life
I realize-
He's watching over me
As I venture wins, losses,
gains and even strife
I realize-
He's watching over me

He comes across my mind,
when I least expect it
guides me, protects me,
as the things I do and say,
reflects it
And He should be first and furthermost
As natural as air from coast to coast
Without realizing His impact
As now I ponder and reflect on it
I realize-

He still watches over me

That DNA

Too many times we forget to correlate who we are with where we came from, biologically… what is our make-up? It is our whole being.
In this day and age, there is a lot of focus on ‘baby daddies and baby mamas’. Unfortunately the connotation that goes along with it is usually negative. But, disregarding the hype, we’re talking about what constitutes the making of a child … boy or girl. It's that simple!
Scientifically speaking, Chromosomes;
In humans each cell normally contains 23 pairs of chromosomes (23 from each gamete) totaling 46. Twenty-two of these pairs, called autosomes, look the same in both males and females. The 23rd pair, the sex chromosome, differs between males and females.

DNA- (Deoxyribonucleic Acid is a self) replicating material present in nearly all living organisms as the main constituent of chromosomes. It is the carrier of genetic information. It is also the fundamental and distinctive UNCHANGEABLE characteristics of something or someone. So, no matter what people think…

You’re not about, what other folks say. 
What you are about is your DNA! 
Just who you are and what you do is 'relatively' diagnosed; it’s what’s IN you.
Other folks can’t dictate your being! 
Other folks see your ‘matter’ without seeing it.  
Because the DNA is deeply embedded, creating our surfaces that are predestined already. 
Yes the blood runs deep-flowing genes inside, so that man can’t deny it, run from it and hide.
And when some say “You look ‘jus like yo Daddy,” or 
“You got yo Mamma’s ways,” no need to get mad at it! 
Because it’s all in you, the DNA, that is.

That microscopic seed. “And ‘tis what ‘tis!”
