Sing a song of splatter,
sing a song of stain,
climbing up the ladder,
coming down again.
We can sit together
on the lowest rung -
coffee in the filter,
coffee on the tongue.
Is anything the matter?
We will start again,
with a song of splatter
and a song of stain.
The Oak and Holly KingsA rivalryThe Oak and Holly Kings2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Many centuries old
Since ancient times,
The tales were told
Of two great kings,
One dark, and one light,
Who twice a year,
Would heroically fight.
The Holly King,
The darker one,
Ruled the Winter,
The dimming Sun.
While the King of Oak,
Was vibrant and bright.
He reigned over Summer,
The Sun's growing light.
At Yule they would battle,
'Twas an inspiring scene,
And the victory would go
To the mighty Oak King.
But at Midsummer's time,
With the Sun at its peak,
The Holly King would win,
The Oak King grew weak.
And so it went on,
Year after year,
And the story was told
To all who could hear.
So, honor the Oa

The Danger in the MiddleThere's something they don't tell youThe Danger in the Middle2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
about swinging both ways
a danger not mentioned,
not known by straights or gays.
How in the end do you face the urge
when ones love must be one gender
or the other?
when there's vagina, yet you yearn for peter.
Not to say love of either is any less
but what can you do
when both is your preference,
yet your love for one is true?
As an honest man I cannot cheat
and would not even want so
but sometimes I want to feel a boy
and over time the yearn seems to only grow.
Sometimes the confusion I feel
seems just too much to deal...
maybe with time the hole will heal.

My cover broken so often.
But can I continue to lie?

Let me know - or not, please.

My cries of sorrowMy cries of sorrowMy cries of sorrow3 years ago in Other More Like This
You tell me I cry too much.
I say you don't cry enough.
And you tell me to build a shell.
Why should I build a shell?
It will not help me.
And it will not protect me from this harsh world
I know why.
It's because you hate to hear me cry.
It's because you see weakness in me when I cry.
Weakness is a sign of inner beauty.
And it shows that I have heart.
I guess that means you don't have one.
I'm sorry that you can't hear my cries of sorrow.
And I'm sorry that you don't have a heart.
I guess you weren't meant to have one.

My sleeves pulled tight
Around my wrists they stay
To where they won't be in sight
These sleeves pulled tight
Let them ask if they may
But they will not be shown in the light
For they shall stay
Hidden from those with prejudice might
And I shall say
That my fright
Is not on display
So these sleeves that I pull tight
Will forever cover my scars
Passing DaysPassing DaysPassing Days3 years ago in Other More Like This
Each passing day:
I'm getting older
As are you
Things start to feel different between us
This feeling is new and it won't stop
There are days when we go back and forth
Saying nice things to each other
Flirting if you will
This changes as well
In to something more
But there are days when we doubt our feelings
And we try to make each other jealous
But it never lasts long
And then years later we're more serious
Talking of marriage
And each passing day of this marriage we are loving
But during we speak of kids and we have 2
And after the kids have grown
We are alone once again
Whistling a new tuneWhistling a new tuneWhistling a new tune3 years ago in Other More Like This
When I was younger
I was a loner
I wore very plain clothing
My hair was a gross brown color
My face was very dull
I had only a few close friends I could trust
Hardly anyone knew me
This old tune that everyone got tired of
This has all changed in the past few years
I now have many friends from numerous cliques
My clothing is extravagant and flashy
With sequins and lace
very dramatic makeup
the entire school knows me either by name or face
I have begun a new tune that is forever changing
It never gets dull
And those that hear it say it's lovely
For now and always I will be whistling a new tune
A True WitchThe witch greets the dayA True Witch4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A candle is lit
With peace and gratitude
In meditation she sits
She plans the day
By the phases of the sacred moon
She sweeps out the old
To make room for the new
She sweetens the air
With incense and oils
She cares for her herbs
And waters the soil
Because she listens
She is given answers
There are things she knows
When she works her magick
The people she loves
In her heart she holds true
She only sees the right
In all that they do
The seasonal Sabbats
Are festive and fun
A feast of celebration
To honor the sun
In the Esbat circle
She draws down the sacred moon
At the midnight hour

Remember! Freedom Of Religion Means Any Religion!!!
Paganism is an umbrella term that covers many faiths,including Wicca. I have heard from both native Americans and Hindus who find similarities between their own religions and Wicca. There are many roads to enlightenment, and all religions are equally valid.
Wiccans respect other belief systems and value freedom of worship for all.Live and let live,as the Rede says.
Pagans are inclusive rather than exclusive karma, enlightenment, reincarnation, ch'i, Tantra, The Akashic Records, you are as likely to find witches discussing these things as adherents of the Eastern belief systems from which
