I’d like to try 23 and Me
and verify my DNA past.
To know exactly where I came from
Definitely at last
However the DNA I know
Has facts for sure and tells a story I see
Like my Grandma Carrie Ena Pearcy
Her cornflower blue eyes she gave my sister and me.
Her sweet disposition is nowhere to be found
In either of us but grandpa Merle’s stubborn streak
Is surely all around.
Grandpa Ralph Disque
Gardened and loved the land
I married a farmer with roots so deep
I always know where I stand.
Some of my cousins I can see
References to us as well
My mom is mirrored more everyday
I live her words I seem to tell.
My two older children look
Like my husband through and through
While the youngest
Is a throw back to the Pearcy crew.
No I’d love to know where on the map
My DNA is culled
But the family that surrounds me
And left me pulled
Me to them like a hug
And I hold on tight
To the DNA I see
Clear as daylight!
