WITCHES – A Poem by Fleassy Malay


[Music] in the past they burned us because I thought we were witches just because we knew what to do with herds outside of the kitchen because we knew how to dance how to seduce how to pray because we moved with the cycles in the past they burned us alive because they knew that we are witches so now we cast spells of our mouths pieces of our hearts spell out it is incredible the power of a woman who is not afraid to say no no we won’t sit any longer while you ponder on our rights and our rights to give or not give life and our rights to make another woman our wife on our rights to be safe to get paid an equal weight to have a voice you know in a place where we might actually make a change it is incredible the amount of ways that they have slaved just to keep us small if they could have they probably would have burned us all but they couldn’t with fire so they did it with words laid down laws to determine the amount of our worth they kept us in contracts they separated our circles erased us from pages and made labor-saving devices our saviors it is incredible how quickly knowledge you can find how much effort was invested to lead us astray we will not come quietly well there’s another thing we’ve tried to take away you know our rights to exclaim our orgasms ecstatically we will not come quiet we will open our mouths and there are spells spin out cast poetic prayers into the nights of every woman can hear the howl of her sisters delight reminding her that her voice deserves to be heard they heard your drop that her shames stop there her body’s scream under the self-pleasure of what it means to be a woman who can speak freely you see words they carry me and they have fooled us for so long into believing that no means yes so much so that I’m almost impressed except what I finally discovered that they’re right so I’ve claimed back that Noah’s mind because every no I throw against their forces is another yes I retain for my own self worth it is a spell I cast for my own protection it is incredible the power of a woman who is not afraid to say not and this odd which I’m done with broomsticks I’m done with know your place this witch knows that some knowledge just won’t fade that every woman is my sister that through the Hubble and the bubble and the toil and the trouble we grow stronger when we cast our spells together that we entered the fire and now we rise from the ashes and we are holding our candles and lighting our matches until the night becomes lighter and our voices can grow because we have remembered we are witches and we have learned to say not [Music] you

  19. I hear you and know that I do not walk alone. Thank you, you majestic, powerful, beautiful Womyn!

  20. Very interesting good performance well rehersed well done Great Message Let all voices be heard and judged by thier fruit 🍎🍊🍌🍉🍇🍒🍍👍

  21. The power and passion in this is palpable. So inspiring. I am a pagan woman so I find inspiration in her words both literal and metaphorical.

    *I don't often go by witch because of the "movie magic" stereotype. I honestly just believe in the energy (proven by science) of things all around us and importance of nature and herbs.

  22. "They have fooled us for so long that "no" means "yes", so much that I'm almost impressed. Except I've finally discovered they're right. So I've claimed back that "no" as mine, because every "no" I throw against their forces, is another "yes" I retain for my own self worth, It is a spell that I cast for my own protection. It is incredible, the power of a woman who is not afraid to say "no".

  23. Everytime i hear this poem my body floods with chills!!! It makes me proud to be pagan. 🌔🌕🌖
