Genogram: The genes in family trees (Haiku)

Some family genes

are generational curse

mental illness’s one.

*****

Breast cancers repeat

among aunties and siblings

Will I get it, too?

*******

Strokes and heart attacks!

Diabetes in family

Hypertension’s twin.

*****

Mum and dad died young.

Will I take after grand-dad

in longevity?

******

Plot the genogram

Work on escaping clutches

of these heritages!

******
