Dont try to change us
dont rearrange us
this is who i am
i was born to be me

people who do
try to change you
never seem to see
my D.N.A. is on view

so in this building
made up of clay
fashioned by the potter
moulding me his way

he has the design
do not interfere
i am only me
best to leave be

dont try to change us
nor rearrange us
leave us the way
dont mess our D.N.A

another wonderful piece of work from you serpico,,,yes,we dont have to change and nobody can change how we are molded by the creature,unless we do so to ourselves and be fake,,,well done againcheers teddybear
it's such a shame that A. people feel compelled to change those around them and B. some people spend a lifetime trying to change who they are themselves. kinda makes me want to chop off my little toe and speed up evolution, though. lol! sorry serpico, couldn't help it, the potter made me this way, you see. a thoughtful write, on many levels. cheers!
