Life is it always a single identity?
When a limb grows roots
On its own, separate space.
So dividing is it one, the same,
Or two or four, when grafted?
Which side is alive or both?

Heart beating death transplanted
Giving new live on another soul dying.
Is that person now really two lives?
Is the brain the only unique organ
That distinguishes our true character?
Transferring a brain would you change?

What is a soul and where does it lie?
Is it inside subconscious brain cells?
We exist in our mind, so do others?
Transplanted time’s umbilical cords,
Genes carrying special biological traits,
But could blond have natural red hair?

What is life?
What is plant life?
What is human life?
What is life with intelligence?

Blade of a lawn mover
Amputating half of life.
One half never grows back
Unless seeded in life!

Note: Live is strange for in some things dividing it multiplies it, while in others subtracting from it adds up to half of it. While in humanity, we subtract before death and do the addition, transplanting an organ still to add up to one living mind with two distinct living tissues. So are living tissues one living thing?
