Mother Goddess

Location

They say witches burn in fire,

arms twisted behind back with iron shackles

and fire licked at beaten - blood - bruised - bared flesh

 

Others say they drown in water,

wrists and ankles bound in roughen rope

and water filling the throat 

 

But a witch, no, that is not my secret behind the Mask of Three

I follow, I hope, I think,

The unknown path of the Mother Goddess.

 

Not in way of magic or magick

Nor that of prayer or sacrifice or asking

No, through none of that do I follow the unknown path of the Mother Goddess.

 

I watch. I listen. I learn.

I seek nor wish nothing,

only the thought of safety after death takes me

 

That is who I am; behind this fiery curtain of life

One who wants nothing of life,

But the knowledge that safety lays in death

 

And in that path, I did find,

the Mother Goddess to take me in,

when that of Man and God did fail me
