A Fairy Tale? – Author Susan E. Birch


In a time before time

When Earth was one great forest

Encompassing oceans,

An elder race,

Gifted for their devotions,

Became the guardians

Of all that is

And all that was.


When man strove to understand his place,

To know and learn of Nature and Earth

They took our hand, gave us grace

To glimpse our true potential worth,

And return that love in equal part

From a self-fulfilling heart.

And so we did

And so it was.

Alas, we then betrayed their trust

And, to our eternal shame,

Forgot the love and learned to lust

For what was never ours to claim.


Earth and Nature became a game

Of thrones and borders never crossed.

Earth was defiled

And Heaven lost.

Who are you? Are you a brave knight? A warrior brandishing your sword, ready for battle. Are you a dreamer? Away with the fairies, losing count of fireflies whilst searching for Neverland. A goth? Who feels right at home with the monsters hiding under the bed, who loves to dance a dervish with the devil on the stroke of midnight. Or perhaps you are a dragon-slayer? Or a soul snatcher? Basking in the heat of an eternal flame. Or maybe you’re a witch? Hiding deep in the woods, practicing dark arts beneath the light of a full moon.
