Beauty and Pain

by Atican

Age Group: Adult

I have now found my path,
a way of beauty and of pain.
The love of all seasons
and the wilderness that remain.

From the wilderous forests,
to the calm grassy plains.
From the grains of the beach,
to the sand that sustains.
From the fearless hurricane,
to the gentle breeze.
From the tornadoes fiery,
to the air that we breeth.
From the blaze of a forest,
to the flickering of a candle.
From the flames of the soul,
to the fire that conseals.
From the waves of the ocean, t
o the mist of the rain.
From the stillness of a lake,
to the water that sustains.

These are the elements of life,
Earth, Air, Fire, and Water.
They compose our brital form
and make our senses stronger.
It is the way of the Earth
and the Moon and the Stars.
With the God and the Goddess,
that are never to busy or far.
It is the way of the Earth
and all fellow Pagans.
From the Guardians and Wizards,
to the Druid and the Wiccans.
Here is our Rule,
it keeps the Earth in a tilt.
"For if ye harm none,
do what thou wilt."
When your soul is calm
and your mind is at peace,
It is then you'll find your way up
and over the crease.
When you follow this path
and your all alone,
The only problem is this --
society sees you as Stone.
Our faith is so true,
that we follow no person.
We worship the Deities,
so please listen to reason.
To follow the Craft,
only once I'll say this --
Should be followed by the strong,
for all we get is Prejudice.
