Walk this way

Set your foot upon the path.
Hold your breath, you can’t go back.
The Powers That Be have seen your deed
And call on you in time of need,
As you call them.
 
Walk the wicked widdershin
Landward, backward, down, within.
Raise the power.  Speak the Word.
Seal with sweat what’s in your blood,
The need to stem.
 
Go back now, the way you came.
But know you’ll never be the same.
Upon your brow you bear the mark.
Others see it, shining dark.
Others who this way have been.
