I am a Witch
Posted by Diana Renata
I can curse and I can cure. I can hex and I can heal.
I cast spells to get things that I want or need.
Sometimes what I need is money. Sometimes what I need is love. Sometimes what I want is for you or someone else to leave me the hell alone.
To protect a pet, a child, my home, my car. To ask beautiful people into my life. To help me love myself. To make that bothersome person to go away. Far, far away. Or for that person to get their just desserts.
It works, and I am not ashamed to use it.
I don't believe in Karma, The Three-Fold Law, or any sort of Divine Judgement.
I believe bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. I believe you suffer the consequences of your actions, or reap the rewards.
Sometimes the gods meddle in our lives for their fancy, or bestow gifts when they see fit. Half of what happens to us in life is chance, the other half we bring upon ourselves. None of us know which is which.
I don't need a Savior, a Redeemer, a path to Enlightenment or Nirvana.
I am held accountable for my own actions. It is I who must redeem myself when I do wrong, and it is I who will pay the price.
This is my path, my journey, and mine alone.
I may share my knowledge, or teach my craft, but to be a Witch is a calling.
If your heart doesn't race at the sight of the Full Moon, if you can't feel the tremble in the air on Halloween, or take comfort in a soul-cleansing cry in the middle of a rainstorm... this path is not for you.
Sex is sacred and beautiful. Birth and death are equally painful yet joyous occasions, and life itself is an act of pleasure.
This is my path, my journey.
I am a Witch. This name I wear with pride.
