If I were a real witch this is what I’d do ~ I’d cast a spell on you!
So that all your pain dissolved away like a marshmallow that fell into the fire
So that you’d cough up all that self-judgment in one final wind thrown out of your body like a Heimlich maneuver ~ forced, but gratifyingly released all the same
So that you’d see your eye wrinkles as maps to the stars and follow them into a cosmic ride where fairies played with your hair and tickled your toes until you finally let go with a loud belly laugh
So that you’d stop asking why and hear truth with each beat of your heart as it says ~
So that you’d know that deep down, you are a witch too ~
A wise beacon of light shining from shore to shore
To magically restore
Beauty to where ever you explore
So which witch do you choose to be?
(FYI – the origin of the word Witch has the meaning of wisdom, wise and wit ~ some sources say it is associated with the sacred and holy. Throughout time it has been given negative connotations as women went through periods of persecution.)
