The Witch In Me

Posted by

I hear her echoing voice

she asks me why do I fear myself

why do I fear my own strength

why do I doubt it

why do you do not trust yourself, she says

Her voice comes to haunt me when I take their words as the truth

instead of trusting my gut

I was young when their words invaded my mind for the first time

creating all the chaos dwelling within me

Now she comes forth to test me, to show me her ways

the ways of a solitary witch

This witch asks me why do I dim my light

She ask why do I fear to unleash my darkness

Haven’t you learned…

changing who you are for approval won’t make you loved

Why do you wait for their permission to love what only you can love

Many do not understand the path of a solitary witch

then what makes you still listen to what they think about you

it is when I quiet my mind, she continues to say I must trust the path I’m choosing

You have felt deep within your soul

the woman you want to become does not yet exists as a role model for you

You go into the forest and you make your own way

Leave behind all of your doubts

And be your own role model of a woman

Follow their judgement and you become the woman you were never meant to be

You love wild winds, let us guide you this time

You love flowing water, let us clear your mind

You love the touch of stones, let us root you to your true nature

You love hypnotizing flames, let us communicate with you

You love the mysterious aspect of life, let us remind you of your infinity

Be ashamed of your nature no more, my solitary witch.

Note: Recently I have been feeling an urge to express myself about something I heard a while ago. A discussion on what it means to be a woman and a set of ideas or even beliefs on things women should do to attain that. I have struggled to find some sense in anything I’ve been told about this topic… So here it is my spirit’s will, not wanting to conform.
