It was a tale like no other tales,
Forgotten and untold by your forefathers
His story began in the forbidden forest
A lost lovely maiden was chased by beasts
She scampered fast; then, suddenly stumbled
There it was her lifesaver, a golden lamp!
Alas, awaken from a hundred years of slumber !
Outraged but the genie was left with no other choice
It was his duty to grant his new master’s 3 wishes
He vowed saying “Your wish is my command!”
The first wish was to salvage her from those monsters
Second wish was to bring her back to her old place
Her third wish was unselfish for it was his freedom!
Few years passed, his origin was known to everyone
His skin withered and his powerless like all mortals
A little girl asked, “Mama, why the genie so gray?”
“Babe, genie is so gray for this is what he wanted
And the maiden only wished for what he truly desires”
His liberty brought him plenty adventures
However, his might had its own limitations
Worst of being free was to feel so much pain
Did he ever regret giving up his lamp?
For he felt a great love and was rejected
Well, this is not sad a story or a happily ever after
Even if he turned gray and had few years to live
He could always look back with a contented smile
For it’s how we survive that makes living worthwhile
And the unusual surprises of life make it beautiful
By the way, did the genie found his true love?
What you wish with your heart will surely happen!
If you really want to know, you can ask him
Perhaps, you know him well, more than I do 😉
How this ends? It’s really up to you, my friend —
“I know that when a door closes, it can feel like all doors are closing. A rejection letter can feel like everyone will reject us. But a closed door leads to clarity. It’s really an arrow. Because we cannot go through that door, we will go somewhere else. That somewhere else is your true life.”
― Tama J. Kieves
Of course, you’re going to get your heart broken. And it isn’t just going to happen once, but a lot. That’s just part of growing up, and it makes you stronger. Then you can handle it better next time. You may not get through it yourself, but your friends will help you through it. And you’ll be a stronger person because of it. Then one day someone will come along, and it’ll all pay off and no one will ever break your heart again.
