Witches, Women, Women, Witches 
A Poem 

Women’s bodies
Women’s ways 

Healing throughout history 
Birthing throughout history

They said it couldn’t be
They said it shouldn’t be

They said we couldn’t be
They said we shouldn’t be

Our bodies, our powers
Our bodies, our gifts 

They’ve been trying to erase and replace us 
For centuries now 

Goddess carvings predate it all
Female bodies worshiped before it all 

Witches/Women were doctors before it all 
Witches/Women were healers before it all 

You think you can twist words, 
You think you can watch us burn 

But no, we women, womb-an, womyn, witches 
Were never good with silence and submission, were never good with being doormats 

And what you don’t get about us, us women, us females, us girls is that 
the flames are always always always at our heels.
