He is standing at the edge of the ocean

Watching the waves rush towards him.

But perhaps rebuffed by his woebegone demeanour

They stop shy of caressing his feet.

He gazes unwavering at the horizon

Waiting for some miracle to take place

A genie in the bottle maybe

To drive away all his troubles and woes.

He forgets that the genie is inside him

Just needing enough push to come forth

The miracle is always within our grasp

If we use our powers to release it.
