I'M An Innocent - Poem by Guarded Heart

They call me a witch
All because nature talks to me
Go ahead and condemn me
A child of nature, no more
I feel the earths energies to the core

I only aim to please
It is your pain i wish to ease
I want no more then to please
And yet you condemn me for more
You blame me for the bewitched
I'm no innocent in your world

The trees speak to me
The breeze greets me
Animals answer to my voice
The storm comes to calm with my kiss
Plants bend to my will
And me herbs cure any ill

I'm an innocent i say!
Please don't throw my life away!
Don't burn me at the stake
Only because your afraid
Of what you don't understand
I'm an innocent don't you see?

Your scared of those who understand
Where mother nature has her hand
If not for her you wouldn't be alive
Shes the key if you are to survive
But not even she can save me from you
And your outrageous, humane views

Please don't kill me
Do you really hate me?
Have you all forsaken me?
Why have you condemned me?
Is there no one left beside me?
Do you believe me guilty?
