I am pagan. Hear me roar. But my roar is only a whispered shout, a gentle breeze that goes unheard, drowned by the typhoon winds of organized religion.

I will not push my religion on you nor will I try to save your soul. I will not knock on your door being a constant nuisance to get you to become part of my "elite" group.

I do not seek "converts". Those destined for the pagan way will find it in their own heart. Mine is a peaceful way. In quietness and solitude, I find my strength.

I will not preach hell and damnation, nor will I tell you that my way is the only way you can reach the Divine. All Gods are one God. All Goddesses are one Goddess. The God and Goddess are one.

I will not corral your children and try to indoctrinate them to my way of thinking. I will not tell them that the devil will get them if they do this or don't do that.

Instead, I will quietly Honor Goddess and God in my own way. I will follow what my heart tells me is right FOR ME.

I will honor the earth and its inhabitants and do my level best to improve rather than destroy the legacy that has been handed down to me.

I will never knowingly harm anyone or myself. What I send out comes back to ME. I will accept responsibility for my own actions and not blame the christians devil or my brother or my neighbor for what I have done.

Yes! I am pagan! Hear me roar!

I'm a free spirit,
Haven't fit any slot
Ordained by society
Since I was a tot.
An artistic person,
A different drum,
Apart from the others,
My own line of plumb.
An independent thinker
With an open mind,
Choosing my own paths,
My own ways to unwind.
I'm a free spirit.
I am what I am.
If you don't like it,
I don't give a damn.
I offer no apology.
Take it or leave it.
I can be a true friend -
You can believe it.
I've come to terms
With the person that's me.
I will always remain
Different, loving, and FREE!
