Witch

January 2, 2018

We are the blood
of the witches
you thought were dead.
We carry witchcraft in our bones
whilst magic still sings
inside out heads.
When the witch hunters
imprisoned out ancestors
when they tried to burn the magic away.
Someone should have
warned them
that magic cannot be tamed.
Because you cannot burn away
what has always
been aflame.
