Honours Life Sciences, Class of 2024, McMaster University
I walk along a path not seen by man,
Converging on two roads, what path shall I take?
As a decision has already been made,
I follow the will of my brain.
Every decision I make,
A meaning, a purpose takes,
Worry not for the mind is strong,
And the heart knows no wrong.
Sinister as it may be, my free will isn’t free,
Like the growth of a tree,
I move knowing what has been calculated,
By an organ far greater than I anticipated.
Crossing paths with your sharp blade,
It’s true what they’ve conveyed,
Physical strength is fierce,
But the mind can pierce.
Brains over brawn,
I feel like a pawn,
Moving between the divine,
These are choices I cannot define.
Seen through the past and present,
A day breaking sacrifice, very unpleasant,
We’ll enter two roads,
The heart and the brain, which shall I compose?
