i’d rather be

the wicked witch–

the one who howls with the moon

the one who sleeps below the stars

no one to tell her to come inside


i’d rather be

the weird witch

the one who doesn’t always fit

the one who stands beside her sisters

under the full moon and in the dark


i’d rather be

the wild witch–

the one who gathers herbs for potions

that can heal the greatest wounds her patients

never even knew they had


i’d rather be

the wicked witch

because she will not always be known as wicked–

one day soon, she will become

the one we’ve all been waiting for

  • She is only called wicked, weird & wild by men (& some women) who feel threatened because she sees & understands what they (we) have never been able to, those (we) who need to marginalize &/or dispense with her so as to protect their (our) precarious sense of privilege & power. But those who can begin to catch a glimpse through her wizened eyes, mind, heart & soul are drawn to her & find healing.
