by Sage

Age Group: Adult

I cannot comprehend
When you take vows
and then
break word
I cannot see how
you stand in the circle
and dishonor promises
You say you are wiccan
your wear their name as a badge
upon your breast
I who have been a Witch
most of my life now stand
head cocked unsure of how
You walk so proud claiming
this name. Strutting about.
I know their law their rede
"Do As Thou Will an' Harm None"
How do you justify your hipocrisy
You destroy and claim innocense
You reach out to harm to damage
Break your word to Man and Goddess
I find myself at my Altar the Witch
Not the Wiccan I ask of the Lord and Lady
Let the threefold law see you as you are
We must live our actions as we do our words
Bear Honor, Witness and Truth
Bare Honor, Witness and Truth
would I the power you would wear the Scarlet Letter
of your ways, Liar, Adultress, Thief,
I know you are hurt and life has not always been kind
It is a universal truth for many of us
It does not give you right to do such brutality
You desecrate Love
There are costs for our actions
The ones you harm are not perfect no one is
I ask for you to have introspection, to face the mirror
and see truth not the lie you create to justify your
I ask for you to walk in the steps of those you harmed
to feel the impressions left by the ghost of you
I ask that you face the world to be seen as you are
I am not free of sin I know of mine and am not proud in it
But I am the warrior also, I cannot protect those I love from
this harm I can raise my hand in battle
Cast and Cry out for my Pantheon
Seek Spell and Spirit
but the pain you cause I must soothe
I must witness and not turn away from
Salve the wound I cannot heal
I use all prayer and meditation send energy and pull pain from heart as is willed and given by the Goddess
Give Honor to those who have earned it
Spite not history to taint the past
Rather walk your new path with creedance and honor to what was
Be a Woman as you claim to be
I see I am angry and furious as I am strong in being a Fury
I am a Valkyrie I put aside my spade and take up my scythe
This lessens me to feel this rage to walk so harshly upon my path The fire burns bright
Threefold says the law Threefold the cost.
Karma be truth.

Author's Notes: I work on myself and my spirituality. I try to be strong and trust in the path. I do not push my faith on others nor dishonor their beliefs, nor do I flaunt my belief. Here in the comfort of community I am more open but in a world where often minds are closed and mouths open I stay steadfast and quiet but not silent. One thing I need strength in is that I cannot understand Oathbreakers. I cannot understand those who desecrate love and honor. I see this woman harm those closest to me and leave a swath cut in her path made of hearts and lies and broken lives. I should not be the one to pass judgement and somehow if the harm was against me and me alone I would be able to tolerate it and pray for her. But here and now where she harms my beloved friends and those I consider family I become so enraged and vengeful. I am the gatekeeper of the history of many people I do not forget. How do I see this harm and not want to protect them not lash out not come to the battlefront weapon ready? If you read this please help pray to whomever your heart belongs if you will that I have the strength of my convictions to be righteous and good and true to myself in the eyes of the Lord and the Lady, to put aside wrath and be steadfast. Let there be peace.
