Things to Tell My Daughter

Be a witch.

Oppose everything
you see, read and hear
strummed up as fact
and scavenge for truth.

Be a witch.

Protect your mind
and your body. Resist
those who destroy what
they fail to
understand.

Be a witch.

Embrace your
inner goddess, possess
her shamelessly.
Be brave and bold.
Your femininity is your
shield and sword.
Let them try and
cast you out.

Be a witch.

Rise from the ashes
of your predecessors.
Evolve into mermaids.
Always remember
you’re the goddess
of the earth.
Life bringer.
Life giver.

Be a witch.

Learn and speak
scandalous tongues.
Resuscitate, revitalize, reinvigorate
the culture of witches and build
our tomes of magic
to pass down
to your daughter
and to hers and to hers and to hers.

Be a witch.
Be. A witch.
Be. A. Witch.
