My Curse, My Cure.

I believe in the magic of my mothers curse.
The Witch spelled I’ld have a child all I am and worse.

“An unrully imbicile, stubborn as a mule,
who’s spirit you’ll struggle to break conquer and rule.
Never thinks before she speaks, and does so out of turn,
Call her Brainless, because she just cant seem to learn.
The child, when grown, I promise no man could love,
The wontoness in her heart, she just wont rise above!
Pain and Suffering she’ll bring from the day she’s born,
The greatest burden a mother has ever worn.
I live for the day when this curse comes to pass.
And then we will see who has the last laugh!”

The green eyed Witch smiled sweetly, and the spell was spun.
How I remember, now my baby girl has come.
" One just like me" and then I’ld know what she went thru.
Three years on, I look at her and know the curse came true!

The sweetest smile, and the wild wind in her hair
But with an attitude like “the Devil may care”!
Head held high, the fire in her eyes a silent taunt.
The Witches words come back with all their glory to haunt.

But when all is said and done, here-in the truth lies,
The Curse was a Blessing without the disguise!
She is my Retribution and my Redemption.
This wild card I hold could be my Hell Exemption!

And while I know the road you’ll choose is long and wild,
To run beside you, is a privelidge, my second child!
In loving you, I may finally set free
The girl inside that looks like the one smiling at me!

My Curse, My Cure.
