RECLAIMING YOUR DIVINITY THROUGH POETRY AND SELF-EXPRESSION

Updated: Jun 4

-An Introduction to the Poetry Book, Eden by KaSandra L. Turner, the Witch and Spiritualist of MAGICK OF EDEN



It has been quite a journey with the project that I have diligently worked on. For those of you who don't know, I have worked tirelessly on my newly published poetry book, Eden. Ahhh!! The process. The tears. The breakthroughs. The awakenings have all been extremely exhilarating and exposing. I have to be honest and say that vulnerability and accepting my emotions was the hardest part of my journey. Coming out to the world and exposing parts of my past in order to help souls like me reclaim their power is the greatest blessing I could have ever received. Having said that, I'd like to share a couple of poems with you. I hope that by reading these poems you are intrigued and called to dive within your depths through poetry as I have.

POEMS FROM THE POETRY BOOK, EDEN





Oppression Maybe?


On the day where the sun

slapped me awake

I sat up feeling empty

like stomachache empty

nauseous with the fate

of meeting a reflection’s gaze

of unsatisfactory skin

painted with the beatings of them

I must have been ten

when I shrugged to the room

designed to lay away your waste

and wash away your sins

Only my sins swam secretly

from my crown to my toes

who left stains for prints

on that screaming cold floor

I opened the door

and that wind shoved me in

A coward I was

to soap my hands and hide

who exposes the fears

in my dilated pupils

things just seemed

much better looking down

at the dirt escaping

from my fingertips and prints

as it rushes through the pipes

leading to a land of vast waste

I envy that dirt

It belongs somewhere

It has its place

and I belong nowhere

except between four walls dancing

with my knowing that I deserve

the opposite of gold’s value and worth.



Nightmare of a Dream


I avoid my reflection in the river

as waterfalls rage down my cheeks

The poems of my tongue are bitter

when it’s my eyes I meet

Disgust fills the pits of their guts

when their eyes lay upon my skin

The erosion of my sin is a must

How dare I find the peace within?


The thorns of my roses slice deep

in the flesh of those who pluck

My roots wither and weep

melting memories into muck

Sprouting through cracks of concrete

seems to be what’s left for me

in this mysterious land of thought

A nightmare of a dream.



Dark Skin


There’s a sort of funny giggling

from pretty gals pacing in midnight
