Fate - Your Genii - Visitor's Poem

by Pranitha Devi Wickins
(Pietermaritzburg, kwazulu Natal, South Africa)

The cataracts of the heavens unveiled
God’s velvety black classroom filled the tract
Edens sparkling students twinkled down at me
-my teardrops sent an s.o.s. back

Thus, night’s lesson had begun
as it does every night
when all of us characters
have gone to dream
of a world, where everything’s right

…and the teacher tells his students
of the villain in the story
how he’s disguised as a gracious genii
granting wishes in all his glory.

How he enters into the lives
of hurt and bleeding souls
promises of love, hope and happiness
oh, how you long to reach those goals

And as you joyously thank you genii
and claim the gift he promised
his kindly smile becomes a sneer
and your hopes…
his wand of solace

and every time he smiles your way
and you feel your heart rejoicing,
your wishes becomes a price to pay,
the genii, your nemesis, just laughing

Your dreams so innocently wished upon
Becomes a nightmare of malice
And if you decide to end it all
he yanks you back from Heaven's palace.

And as you’re left
To breathe again
He bows and turns away
Only to return after a while
Should happiness head your way

Yet unbeknown to the Genii
God watches from a distance
Sending wisdom and protection
For a happier, more blessed existence

He stands and knocks and waits for me
To stop wishing and complaining
And trust him for the guidance
To get more than what I am claiming

And as the dreamers toss and turn
And fate picks his next character
The teacher closes his dark book
At the end of another night's chapter.
