36 (who?)
What is a Pagan?
What be a Heathen?
Do we walk on cloven hoof?
Do we burn the ground where which we stand?
Are we demons to be laid before the cross?
These words, these labels, be not our own.
Merely placed upon our heads by men with fearful hands,
And eyes blinded by a hollow light.
What is a Pagan?
What be a Heathen?
Some walk nature's path, hear her voice on the wind!
Some hold their swords high, battle-cries to the gods of old!
Some work the fabric of our world, knotting and weaving they command!
But the same blood flows through us all!
With fiery eyes and souls of steel!
We stand as one, and shall kneel to none!
This is a Pagan!
This be a Heathen!
What is the measure of a man? Good question...

I'm on a roll, I haven't put out this many poems this fast in ages! I owe it all to the strength and unity of my Pagan brothers and sisters, and a little band called TYR!

Thank you, very much, for submitting this wonderful poem. It helped me gain a little self-confidence, since people really do believe we are demons and worship the Satan or something. It's very lovely, and I hope many more people read it. <3

Gorgeous work here... If only more people would understand we aren't demons... Wish my parents would figure that out too...
I digress, beautiful work here. Blessed be :heart:

Many thanks. Also don't worry about what others think, your path is yours alone. They may one day accept you, or they may not, in the end all that matters is you accept yourself.
