The Lady of white is no fairy tale
She is just the beginning of hell
She will break your heart and make you cheat
Make you think your life is complete
The diamond she holds in her eyes
Eventually become the ones you despise
No matter how hard you try to forget
She is only satisfied with a life of regret
She can appear in so many ways
And leave your mind blank for so many days
Beware of this lady and her trick
For her pleasures are rather sick
She's a genie a bottle of smoke
No laughing matter no joke
She'll make you run make you hide
She will take everything including your pride
She'll make it a challenge, give you a test
And she will smile when you are obsessed
So if you know this GENIE of today
It's your soul for you I pray
By: Joseph E Simonetti

I used the cartoon because the real thing is just way to disturbing for me. Especially when you see someone you love partaking of "Genie". I have lost a couple from this ugly drug and addiction. A very painful way to lose someone when it is self inflicted and they could have saved themselves but lose all desire to do so. Very selfish if you ask me. Being around a loved one that has this is a complicated drama continually walking on egg shells.  The highs and lows, mood swings, paranoia, and lack of interest in life. You want to do all you can to help them but realistically you just end up enabling them. THEY have to want the change for anything to progress towards the healing. 

Good heart ed loving souls consumed in a dark spiral. I hope the ones I have lost out of my life will finally see a light at the end of the tunnel and all the ones that adore them there ready to support and love them. They have so much to offer everyone and we have so much to give them.

  1. I loved the poem...I too have lost people due to the "genie". It is an epidemic that needs to be addressed more agressively, imho.
