It’s not a matter of how or why but when
When I can say with some certainty
What’s written in this smallest script in predestiny
A sequence lies in wait to sow seeds in my mind
Like blood and blood before
I’ve a predilection for self-destruction
A strand so fine and yet it binds us all
A life’s history
A family history
A common end
A common end for us all

    General CommentThis is about DNA. An allele is a gene. "It's not a matter of how or why but when"- proteins are expressed (to show traits) always at specific times throughout life. "What's written in this smallest script in pre-destiny A sequence lies in wait to sow seeds in my mind"- DNA is decoded with four letters A,T,C, and G. There are trillions of base pairs throughout the human genome. Every person has a specific sequence of the four letters. The specific sequence will determine your traits..how your body will express proteins. "A strand so fine and yet it binds us all. A life's history, A family history, A common end, A common end for us all" DNA looks like a loopy white strand to the human eye, extremely fine and thin. We are all related to each other, a human's DNA is relatively 99.9% identical to all other humans. DNA is hereditary, you get your traits from your parents, who get their traits from their parents, etc. We all share a common ancestor, we all share a common end.
