All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
This is my personal memories of a life long passed i hope it helps others understand what those times really felt like from one who lived it.
In the brave-less tear struck street
On this Battle field they will meet
Flaming swords for Queen Ann Keep
Look there flaying in the street
Another beggar they've brought to his knees
Around each corner they creep
To Union Street they'll flea
Cowards don't you see
For not one will stand with me.
Creeping, crawling, sticky, tangled webs of lies they weave.
All in a attempt to be rid of those like me.
Once admired and loved now ridiculed for all to see.
Can't you smell it in the air??
The flames, the lies, oh yes that stench of death is everywhere.
In the street, in the house, even the sheds don't you see.
Those that where once just like me.
Now their all dead and those crusaders are on to me.
I see you there on the street looking back at me.
Round these streets they flow worse then that ole plague.
Black death it came with less rive rely.
This plague of man the bible, the lord, dear Jesus in their bands.
My how they have swept the lands,
They rape, they torture, accuses and refuse,
They burn our bodies to cleanse our so called evil ways.
The cross they bare once had power of humility a symbol of peace.
What as always been ours has been striped from us tainted and bloodied.
That cross now forever ever will be tainted with blood of innocents
Because of make believe.
We tried to fight we truly did
Our lives met with a resistance that was much to strong,
In hate there's power for it makes you more then you are
Our resistances is fading through death and false conversions.
Closer and closer they come praying through the streets to their god of make believe
Here they come looking for me.
Alone I am this battle at hand
Oh wait they stopped oh no just another person tried and killed for Heresy
You created this make believe
You gave our ways our rules
You honer our days our fests
You stole our symbols trying to make them your own
You planed your days and nights by us
You look to us for all your garden woes of when to plant and when to harvest.
Yet you came for us and still today you come for us.
When are you going to realize you came from us.
Yet there preach your murderous make believe in attempt for power and greed
A god of design with rules of man
You stole our history
You took our lands
You have killed millions in your quest for power and control
Closer closer I can smell you now, that superior stench
Knock Knock Bang Bang it has begun
Down my door they bust
By my hair I am drug
Accused of ancient mystery and loyalty to ways long sense outdated
Through the streets they spit at me.
Oh look theirs brother tom and sister sue,
I saved their daughters life with my witches brew.
Oh the beating hurts i am human to you see
Now the time has come to convict me
So young am i only 18 yet here i stand
My arms are bound my mouth is clamped shut.
Dirt fells from my clothes has they hoist me on the pit.
A cross wouldn't you know
Around my feet logs and sticks and hay oh me,
In the crowd i see countless people that a year ago loved me.
Now they mock me call me names,
Repent and save your soul give up your heritage your ways
Give us your money you soul and your body,
We will spare your life,
Denounce what you are and admit your evil ways
Or die by the hands of those you supposedly saved.
The tears in my eyes just can't be stopped
What did i do to deserve this on this day.
Oh that's right i already know I was born with magic or so they say
Little do they know their just as much a witch as me.
They might hide behind their masks their power and their greed
But in the end their skin burns just like me.
Through the tears i could hear them say
If you wish us to save your life accept Jesus and your life will be spared
For only this brief moment the gags where removed,
Just in time for me to say Screw You.
Kill me if it makes you feel more powerful
Remember this in the hour of my death
You make these choices to trade your souls for evil and hate
Remember these words that I'll take to my grave,
I am you sister your mother your friend,
On this day you shall murder me because on my life i have never abandoned thee
You came to my door you prayed for my help
I shared with you the wisdom of all ancient ways,
When your crops started producing, your children survived countless brushes of death
When you look to the sky to a heaven of make believe what you'll see
Is millions of years of history laid out for all to see,
I hope someday day you'll see you can't fight Karma with faultiness
The actions you take no god can remove
Your actions are you own as to are those repercussions,
My karma is clear for i have done all i ever could
To bring no harm and live in the good.
You take my life but not my soul
Though forever more from this day forth as my cries ring though the streets
As my blood and my flesh burn at your feet
You will be forever tied to me a debt of life after life you will have to me
For that is karma your bible even tells you so
You must reap what you sow
As you fade and the fire burns higher
I leave this body on a way to another.
You humans just don't see
Your soul equals infinity
You kill me now but i will rise again
Of this you have my guarantee
I'll fight this battle for as long as need be.
Author Notes This is a touchy subject and i suspect it will be met with unkind responses from some, but the joy of freedom of speech is that we all have the right to express ourselves, and though this may not sit well with some remember it is only history, its facts put into a poem form from my person perception, I hope you can read it with respect.
