Sometimes I wonder what shapes who I am
What creates parameters that limit my span
What conversations dialogues and such
Programmed my brain before I knew much
What binds a generation to what it might be
To the biological ancestry next on its tree
What is the imprint of our DNA
How much of our parent’s governs our way
It’s not only following genetic loading
We also get stuck with their sense of foreboding
It comes through our senses in through our pores
Most of it before we develop walls
It not only comes in genes and energy
It comes in words that prevent being free
The standards set down control who we are
Until we rise above we cannot get very far
Please cleanse yourself of thoughts planted in you
Examine how they impinge what you can do
If you’re not getting where you want to go
And you can’t figure out what is holding you so
Listen to your parents and the words that they use
Think of their limitations that reside inside you
To honor yourself and gain your full height
You must extricate their words fears and freights
Say good-bye to restrictions you did not choose
Out with their values or you will lose
To get where you want takes more than a vision
First unlock the imprinting that has been your prison
Have you ever thought about the origins of your values, beliefs, worldview and limitations?
Are they all a product of your conscious choice?
Have you thought about what aspects are part of your genetic DNA?
What is part of the way you were brought up?
Do you think it would be valuable to examine the world view that underlies your perceptions and values?
