when I was young
by April Voxfire
Age Group: Adult
When I was young
I would speak past my tounge
and invite anyone to stare
to dare, to know, to will
but silence was never fair..
I felt no shame in what I did
I was bold-
I flew out of the broom closet!
I set the flame and they threw me in
because ignorance is easier than knowledge.
When I finally had enough
and placed my own faith in doubt
The Goddess sent my peers
and blew every light in the school out
Some of them gasped
Some of them screamed
I sat at my desk
and whispered with glee:
"The Goddess is alive,
and magik is afoot!"
Author's Notes: This is a true story that happend to me in my freshmen year of highschool. I was getting teased and tourmented on a regular basis for being Wiccan, and I guess one day the Goddess had to put her foot down- After the black out everyone pretty much kept their distance
