Genetic Reincarnations

Genetic Reincarnations

She told me of her theory,
About how we all live on.
She said there was no death,
Merely new pathways we’re on.
Those paths live through our children,
But perhaps when souls choose to return,
They do so in genetic lines,
That your 20th cousin,
Might actually be you.
It made me ponder of those
Great ones who I can name,
Who then could I be today?
What possibilities from time?
For if greatness runs in families,
Just have a look at mine.
