"You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart, maybe you'll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. The thought of losing so much control over personal happiness is unbearable. That's the burden. Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us to fly..."

Everyday your cells divide
They grow, they stretch, and multiply
It can occur in hours or in days
But the first stage is always interphase
Though you may be unaware
In this stage, DNA is copied everywhere
When division is prepared, the DNA is shared
That completes the stage

Mitosis begin after this
There is not one stage the cell can miss
There are four parts to the stage,
Prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase
In prophase chromatin condense
They create chromosomes, hence
The nuclear envelope breaks down
So the newly made chromosomes are found

Metaphase can be seen very well
As the chromosomes line up in the center of the cell
Spindle fibers latch on the centromere
Don’t worry, it’s part of division, do not fear

Next the chromosomes are torn apart
This means that anaphase will start
As they run to opposite side
The cell starts to divide
And finally, during telophase,
The cell changes in many ways

Within this stage as the two new nuclei form,
You can tell a new cell will be born

In cytokinesis, cytoplasm is pinched and squeezed
After dividing at the middle, the cell feels at ease
Now two new daughter cells have been formed
We surely hoped that you are informed

And then it begins again

I love going back on this and seeing how far I have came.... And to see how far I have overcome I will admit it was very hard.

You can be inspired by it, but I'd prefer if you didn't use it word for word, unless you cite me (plagiarism and all that jazz).
