Genie in a Bottle

She lives inside the bottle
Where she perceives the magic is
That tasty golden liquid
With ice and spritely fizz

But the magic in that bottle
Has stolen all her light
Leaving waves of broken hearts
And shadows from many fights

The magic in that bottle
Has taken all her joy
Gifted her with suffering
For her and her two boys

The thing she doesn’t realize is
She’s filled with golden light
She’s brilliant and she’s beautiful
She’s amazing and she’s bright

She forgets….SHE is the genie
The magic's within herself
Rich with lessons and experience

Here to share her wealth

She has chosen this river
Her spirit understands
May the bottle she resides in
Rest gently upon dry land.

Carrie on…..
