Dark Shamans - a note to self

Good evening dark shaman, priest of the wholly other. He who lingers in twisted places.

You should know, no matter how hard you try people will still see you.

You cannot exclude yourself entirely.


Hello dear seer, who stands alone and observes.

Perhaps you see something that others cannot see,

But when others embrace your vision, do you give it up to be alone again?


I love you witch standing by the river.

You show me how to love those who are not loved.

But sometimes you are too proud and make a fetish of real pain.


Dark shamans,

your seeing is not defined by your rarity, or by your absence, or your pain, but by your seeing.


Keep your seeing, let go of the rest.
