Witch or Wiccan , which am I?

Updated on August 23, 2011

Witchy woo!


Witch or Wiccan?

Wiccan lore be gone ye must,

For Wiccan I am not , a Witch I am just.

So the law of three

Does not go for me.

Not every Witch is a Wiccan you see!

That is not to say I have no respect,

My Wiccan brethren I will not neglect.

I just do not follow your Wiccan lore,

Just love and light I can not abhore,

As darkness and death in my path I saw.

Keep your Mysteries , I need them not.

For love in Hecate , Zeus and Hera I have got.

So those new to Witchcraft please remember ,

You do not need to be a Wiccan member.

Witchcraft can be your sole path .

A journey for only you to remember.

So blessed be and love and light.

I wish you luck in your Wiccan plight.

For the mysteries are not easily found.

They are hidden deep in the underground

    Great poem! I've been reading a lot about Wicca and Witchcraft recently and it's fascinating. Though a bit too rigid for me in a way, as I prefer good old shamanism.

    The idea that Wicca is very light and never dark is very recent, and not at all like the Traditional Wicca I have studied for thirty years.

    Reminde me of my Mother.

    She was Welsh and we all called her a Witch.

    In the nicest possible sense of the word. lol

    She did some amazing things.

    Thanks for the memorie's.....

    I shall be following you from now on.

    I am English with a lot of Celtic influence.

    Welsh Ma, Irish Da.

    All the best to you and your family.

    Thanks for commenting and following on my hub. I am new to all of this so don't know exactly what I am doing but having fun anyway. Just promoting my businesses and interests along the way. I too am a pagan, not Wiccan. I am attending Priestess of the Goddess Training in Ashland, Oregon. It has brought so much peace and fulfillment and love to my life. Don't know how I ever got by without it! Take Care.

    What a great poem! One of my good friends in high school was Wiccan (I think she's Pagan now, but I'm not sure.)

    Excellent poem. It is so vivid, I can see the witch working her incantation over a big black cauldron.

    Always Hattie, but there is always an opposite in life and we have to embrace and respect both in balance xx

    Well whatever path you choose hope it is always in the light and love. That is respectful of others, and the best for the whole of humanity! Unity, Harmony, and Peace for the earth and all man kind!
