A poem interpreting the Prompt- Genie. In response to the Daily Prompt.

 

 

You had time today

You have time tomorrow

But you don’t speak up

You keep your emotions bottled up

 

He said he liked you

Too afraid to say yes

Too afraid to get hurt

You said something worse- Nothing

 

You did not speak up

You kept your emotions bottled up

 

You always held a grudge

Against the way he treated you

First you lost your self esteem

Then you lost your voice

Only had you spoken up

Would there have been a step up

 

You had time today

You have time tomorrow

But you don’t speak up

You keep your emotions bottled up

 

There will come a day

When you will be laying in a corner

Your mind punctuated with what ifs

What if, you had spoken up?

What if, you had unscrewed the bottle?

And let the emotions flow…

What if…

What if…

 

So buck up!

There is still time

 

No more wishing for the past

Speak up for your future

Unleash the genie inside you

Only YOU can save you!!
