warrior mother witch

am not
your victim
am not
i know who i am
i know what i am
i am warrior
& witch
i choose where
i am
i choose
my own path
& i refuse
to walk
in those shoes.

a new friend who is a bit of a new age zealot told me i needed to stop being a victim when i described to her how my empathetic self felt it had absorbed too much of nate’s angst.
i do not like being called a victim.
i watched my mom spend her life as a victim of my dad, & i have never let myself be anyone’s victim.
yes, people have done bad things to me. but i have rescued myself. i always rescue myself.
