The Forgotten Melody

Do you feel the burning?

Like a long forgotten melody,

Whispering through your thoughts,

Only to fade away when you grasp it to study its details.

Child do you know what that call within is?

That inner music is the magic of a long lost age,

The crackle of power we have forgotten how to use.

What we must ask is Do we want it back?

Do we grasp it tightly,

And spread our wings to take flight?

Or do we turn our eyes to the rat-race fight,

And forget our roots to wither in the night?

What would your choice be?

To choose to follow the magic,

Is to mark yourself apart from the lost.

We feel the life under our bare feet,

When they look on us in wonder and shake their heads.

It is to stand proud when they hate you.

Strong when they try to hurt you.

At peace when they trouble you.

Living our lives among the lying corpses,

Ignoring the shame they try to bestow upon us as gifts of death.

Awaken to the Earth’s cries my child,

Feel the magic in the touch of dampened dirt,

In the smell of rain washing away the old.

Do not be scared my child,

For you are not alone in this walk.

Ancient Gods walk beside and within you,

Their gifts and tests area a part of this life.

May you never forget Them my little one,

For They will never forget you.

About darkbookworm13

I am a proud mom to 3 beautiful girls, and married to the love of my life. I have been a practicing Witch since the summer of 2003, having studied many different paths over the years, ranging from Wicca, Goddess only worship (courtesy of StarHawk), Eclectic Paganism, Kitchen Witchcraft, Norse Paganism, Hearthcraft, Spiritual Luciferianism, and more. I have worked with the Futhark runes, Brian Froud's Faeries Oracle deck, Tarot decks, and I am currently working on a customized divination set based on collected items. I like to work with herbs, and gardening. I crochet and make handicrafts like wood burned items, paintings, drawings, toys, and hand sewn doll clothes for my daughters. The only title I call my spiritual path is Witchcraft, as using magic entwines deeply with the worship of the Gods who call me Their own. My Patron deity is Loki, who has chosen me as His kin.
