Genie: Lesson from a Wish

DocFile (3)

Filled with greed

sitting next to a tree

a man rubbed a bottle

then appeared a genie

 

A wish was granted

the man wanted to be rich

he turned to stone

because there was a hitch

 

The years passed

his spirit could only observe

learning along the way

till his sentence was served

 

Released from stone

he was rich indeed

having observed life

now free to heed

 

Through the years

his spirit breathed the air

watched all kinds of behavior

some with flair

 

Having learned riches

are not silver or gold

kindness, contentment, love, and joy

are the riches of old

 

Making his way

down the mountain top

living in the moment

his wealth never stopped
