Growing up in a one room house on the outskirts of town.

You could call it normal if.

You could call it a normal childhood if you considered growing up in a one room house on the outskirts of town

with parents who took their siblings to gatherings in the forest with other adults to practice the old ways

Where your mother would teach you about the way of the woods and how to use herbs and fungi for potions

Where she made a living by midwifery, fortune telling and healing.

Where you and your sisters were looked upon with disgust by the townsfolk and the other children were not allowed to talk to you and lived in fear of you.

Yes, I suppose you could call it a normal childhood if you considered growing up in a one room house on the outskirts of town

Where the townsfolk would whisper “she walks the streets and enters your home at will."

I recall those dreams I had about visiting the houses,

seeing people in the streets late at night

seeing others asleep in their beds.

Yes, I suppose you could call it a normal childhood if you considered growing up in a one room house on the outskirts of town.
