Jinn or Genie?

Mythical Creature: Jinn Origin: Arabia

The genie brings fame, fortune and wins

they are the commercialised version of Jinn.

The genie was created to serve and appease

granting their masters wishes in threes.

An ancient creature of the Arabian lands

the Jinn hides in plain sight in homes, along mountains and in sand.

Malevolent and mysterious; created from smokeless fire

a demonic spirit with dark desires.

One could be silently hiding in your home

waiting for that moment when you are alone.

That mysterious figure you saw through the mirror

the shapeless reflection near your dresser.

Or when your skin crawls like a million small louse

there is a strong chance you have a Jinn in your house.

Misty shadows which roam your corridors

and bursts of cold air from under the floor.

The Jinn will mess with your soul and your mind

your dreaming and reality will become intertwined.

Unlike the genie who grants happiness and wealth

the Jinn brings darkness; feeding off your mental health. ~ Fam Zsolti
