Liberation of the genie


 


Freedom from the bindings of  pedagogy


a sudden realization that itís not for me


Iíve been knocking my head against the wall for what?


I can see the rejection in their eyes.


I failed to give the right answer.


or maybe they just donít like something about me


and in the ebb of the tide something was left behind


on the soggy remains of my self esteem


the realization that they are doing me a favour


I am free to be me, as the clichť goes


it is a gift and for that I am grateful


and another leaving in the wane of the tide


the understanding that my writing may displease or scare them


The genie is out of the bottle


Boo.

I read this poem, and have learned from its message.
The boughs of this tree in the prairie of decision are long, and its leaves are of brilliant green providing a pleasant shadow to accommodate THE BOTTLE'S HOLDER and the "Liberation of the genie"

Keep posting, Poet!

What a great write on the liberation of one's intellectual, creative, and spiritual self. Have to respect a poet who can use the word "pedagogy" in the very first line:-) Enjoyed LIBERATION OF THE GENIE immensely.
