What is a witch?
There are a lot of stereotypes of what witches are...The first one people think about is this:
I borrowed this from a dear friends site. This is not what we are! We do not fly through the air with a cat on our broomstick, (the cat weighs us down...just joking!). We do not get together once a month a trade our flying tips!
The other thing people think about is usually..."Cool, I wanna be a witch, can you teach me how to do a spell to make that guy/girl love me"....."Can you change me into a toad?"
Well if I had the abilities trust me there would be a few more toads in the world! *giggle* But that is not what we do. We don't dance around fires naked and beat on drums. AND WE DO NOT WORSHIP THE DEVIL!
We worship the Earth, Moon, and Sun. We do not harm anyone...that is one of our biggest laws. To read more about our laws go to my "What is Wicca" page.
Below I have included a poem that someone sent me. I believe that it is a wonderful poem and is pretty much what any witch believes. The author is unknown as far as I know, but if you know or are the author please email so I may give you credit.
