So Mote It Be.
How far do you walk
and where do you go
for it happens so often
this walk that you do
that it’s peaceful to know
it is only for you.
While on this Earth-walk
our conscious becomes alive
and it’s through this awareness
that we can survive.
So, I ask you now in all seriousness
where is this place of Trust and Innocence
that we are told so often, Really exists.
So try not to struggle and be balanced in thought
for it doesn’t matter at all where you will start
The secret you’ll find is to stay True to yourself
so you can be you and nobody else.
Our lives are a gift for us to embrace
So my question to Thee?
Is why do we hate.
I don’t know why
It’s so hard to explain
The Beauty and Peace even the Pain.

The Candles Are Blowin’ Out Again
Words: Liam Cyfrin Music: Blowing in the Wind by Bob Dylan
How many robes can a Witch ignite While dancing too close to the flame? How many words from the Grimm Brothers’ tales Can you really expect to “reclaim”? And how many chants fall as flat as a tack When you mispronounce each Sacred Name?
Chorus: The candles, my friend, are blowin’ out again. The candles are blowin’ out again.
How many times can the incense go wild And firemen break down your door? How many times can athames get dropped And spear peoples’ feet to the floor? Yes, and how many times can you brandish your wand And whack the HP on the jaw?
How many years can you do the same rite And still get the words mostly wrong? And how many spells of “Hereditary Craft” Quote verses from Erica Jong? And how many times can your Sabbat Great Rite Last less than a half minute long?
