 Poem Fit For A Christian

Don’t cry for us, we don’t need your tears
Stop fighting this war, we don’t need your fears
Stop preaching at us, we don’t need your hate
Your threats of hell only create
Needless strife and animosity
Why can’t you people leave us be?

Our magick does not hurt anyone
Our motto is “An’ It Harm None”
As well as Perfect Love and Perfect Trust
Things that your devil holds in disgust
We witches only seek to do good
Despite your ill-judgments we have withstood

Why can’t you “Christians” treat us like
Fellow humans? We are much alike
For we all deserve kindness and respect
We’re not viruses that kill and infect
Stop treating us like a rescue mission
And our beliefs a “treatable condition”

Take a good look at how you treat others
We’re all supposed to be your sisters and brothers
Do you ever just stop and try to think
And wonder if kindness is your missing link
Don’t treat us or anyone like charity cases
Stop seeing our “sins” and start seeing our faces

Try to actually get to know us
Our “evil ways” aren’t what you need to show us
That wasn’t Christ’s purpose on this Earth
Compassion was the reason for His birth
Until you really start to act like Him
Your holy words mean little in the end

We are not the ones clouded up by lies
We’re not the ones who need to realize
To practice the very words we preach
Hollow words push people out of reach
So stop judging us, we don’t need your shame
You only have yourselves to blame
