Is so exhausting.
I am weak,
I could lay my head down and
Just give up right now.
I like to find the witch in me,
sometimes it is so hard to see.
I use magic so I can be,
daughter of the earth, set free.
I attune with the turning earth.
Seasons can bring sorrow and mirth.
Then for what it is truly worth,
of happiness, there is no dearth.
Find answers wherever they hide
That still, small voice that lives inside.
For you have searched both far and wide.
Now manifest a smoother ride!
forgive yourself first
then forgive everyone else
no matter the crime…
you will have to learn
to accept this part of you
the dark to your light.
