We examine lots of specimen in our scientific endeavours and otherwise, but one we fail to consciously take notice of but unconsciously study is that which science itself tagged ‘XX chromosome’, yeah, the feminine gender.
There are lots of things that baffle me about this specimen, and one is the unique change with age which is distinct and recurrent, with love featuring as a constant.
At a much tender age, the XX chromosome tends to be the pride of the breeders, especially when they come as the last baby, and are always they apple of everyone’s eye, receiving almost all the love and care from all corners. Then to the adolescent years, where they become recipients of long listed material and non-material articles from lovers, crushess, lustees, family, friends and relatives alike. All these phases seems to be of less interest to me though, than the final stage — the matured stage.
At this stage, the XX Chromosome is already settled down with/without wards, but most times, with wards. They then start to shower all the love and care it had recieved over the years on these wards, in multiple folds, making me wonder what has become of the law of diminishing returns. It has the ability to raise life — a rare opportuntity– and give rise to a new breed of society to ensure continuity. It has the ability to nurture with love and care and above all, it has the ability to intimately understand and relate to just about any creature and complexity of life. Isnt that sweet?
Sometimes, I wish to know more about the maker of this specimen who took time to add tough features of kindness, care, love, understanding, knowledge and wisdom in one fragile-minded specimen, and how they go along so well. Just so perfect!!! The XX Chromosome can go on a self-declared hunger strike, if it meant others getting well fed. It does hard chores which are considered routine and easy, but really otherwise. It manages the home in a way second to none, raises leaders, strives for excellence, settles disputes and quarrels, slow to anger, supplies much needed love … Oh!! The list is endless. This specimen is just awesome.
Moreso, it takes strength from LOVE, which also weakens it. Its love for other creatures around, be it same chromosome or not, sometimes creates a tingling sensation in its heart, spontaneously sending impulses to the ‘Love Response Glands’ which produces the tear– a symbol of its love.
In its uniqueness, it loves while hating, cries when happy, springs when elated and sheds when hurt. But why on earth would anyone be so wicked to make this special specimen shed of hurt? Anyone in care of any breeds of this specimen should handle with care because although it might come on with a strong attitude, it is actually fragile inside. Never make it waste any of its tears, make all drops count.
A big shoutout to all breeds of the specimen — cousins, aunts, mothers, nieces, grandmothers, girlfriends and sisters. Much love from the XY chromosomes. We really do appreciate you.
