We did not evolve to be ourselves,
Our consciousness is controlled by chemicals.
Neither the mind, the body, the heart
nor free will belong to us.
We respond to secretions of the brain:
serotonin and dopamine,
endorphin and oxytocin –
Neurochemicals defining who we are.
Our minds are controlled by chemistry
and we are brainwashed by volatility.
We are bombarded by contradicting messages,
lost in our own wretched wilderness.
