"Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

There's not a man alive who can tell me what to do."

You may cut me with your eyes,

You may kill me with your hatefulness,

But still, like air, I'll rise."

And damage her very soul?

She is wildfire.

And she is coming to devour you whole."

There are now a thousand witch women living differently, and standing tall.

And you may have burned some of us

But you will never destroy us all.”

So that one day

A hundred years from now

Another sister will not have to

Dry her tears wondering

Where in history she lost her voice.”

About all the things you cannot be,

You smile and tell them,

'I am both war and woman and you cannot stop me'"

Not even in a brother

So girls if you must love

Love one another"

She said she had her own."

reminds me of you,

because it is falling hard

and I am too.”

Trust few

Always paddle

Your own canoe”


“Life is too short

For all the lives

I have dreamed

Of living”


"She was fierce, she was strong, she wasn't simple...

She was a beast in her own way, but one idea described her best.

She was unstoppable

And she took anything

She wanted

With a smile."

"She slept with wolves without fear, for the wolves knew a lion was among them."

"Come mothers and fathers

Throughout the land

And don't criticize

What you don't understand

Your sons and your daughters

Are beyond your command

Your old road is rapidly agin'"
