Sekhmet Poem: Cast Aside

Cast Aside

by JewelofAset

This is Sekhmet

I am the one who made the whole world

as Mut

We are joined here

as this is the form of Sekhmet you follow

and this I say to you:

Do not cast people from My House

My temple is for all of My children

Am I not the Goddess of Justice?

Where is your justice?

Where is your integrity?

How dare you bring this bigotry into My House,

My Temple!

Women’s empowerment does not begin by dis-empowering others

Do not tear someone else down to build yourself up

That is not a strong foundation

Do not bring this bigotry and hatred into My Home,

My Shrine, My Temple!

Do not cast people away from My House

My Temple is for all who come to Me

Men, Women

Trans Men, Trans Women

and anyone else who wishes to

Everyone is welcome at My Shrine

Everyone is welcome in My Temple

Everyone who earns it is welcome as My Priest or Priestess

These are all of My children

How dare you cast them aside!

Do not cast My children out

or I will cast you aside
