Opposing Forces – Saturday Mix, 18 December 2021

Sarah from mindlovemisery’s menagerie hosts this week’s Saturday Mix.

Our words this week are:

– lower and raise

– celebrate and mourn

The Witches

Lower your voice and raise your eyes
to look upon the scene
Listen to screaming and awful cries
to know just what I mean

We sit here to celebrate her special day
with happiness and cheer
And mourn the loss of her young age
and she ages another year

But aging is not that simple as seen
when witches are brought forth today
They burn at the stake and run for their lives
with sadness and much dismay

So little is known about these lost souls
who scurry about unknown
Belief is not what gets done now
But through only that which is shown
