A History Lesson

Women are witches
without proof or truth
meant for the fire
burned for existence

Women are ornament
without voice or consent
meant for the male gaze
that gives legitimacy

Women are free
to breed, but not choose
to exist, but with a smile
to work, but without rest

Women are witches
we remember the burning
we hold the fires within us now
waiting to be unleashed – Caroline A. Slee
