A Poem by Zenani Phakathi 7MZ

I am a Salem Witch forced from her home

Shoved into a new world, I am all alone

Everything I have ever known is now a distant memory

I take the form of an ancient man to ward the evil away from me

In this body, everything is quite different

Before, I was weak and small

Now, I am powerful, magnificent

An endless greenery I walk through

My life, now in my own hands

The soft ones that once held it

Were killed by women and men

The bitter taste of fear and hate sit upon my tongue

My towering staff and pointed hat hide all my grey

I’ll have to travel far and wide

Near and far, this is true

But one thing that must remain

Is that I am a Salem Witch through and through!
