Witchcraft Is Killing Me.

I am fatally bewitched
Though scientists disbelief
The malevolence is too much
Choking and killing me slowly

Do you know of a simple protection?
Something to break the stranglehold
Can you save me from this torment?
Release me from the horror?

The black magic has ruined me
Robbed me of any happiness
All my efforts fail inexplicably
And now all my hope is dashed

Now I am on the verge of death
Unable to fend for myself
I have no one to help me
For a remedy to this malaise

I know from whence it comes
A knowledge that cuts even deeper
Someone whom most refer to as mother
Has become my worst possible nightmare

The incredulity of it is a handicap
As my siblings don’t believe me
Who else can I convince for help?
Before I am tortured to hell?

That’s why I turn to you stranger
As all the familiar has failed
Hoping that one of you may help
As my last shot of hope

Don’t tell me to buy something
As I am broke to the bone
Don’t ask for consultation fee
As I can’t afford any

Is there a simple powerful remedy
To vanquish such evil malice?
Is there a working mantra or prayer
That doesn’t end up as pure gibberish?

If you are a benevolent witchdoctor
Or a sympathetic soothsayer
Please have pity on my tormented soul
And cast a protective halo on me

I have tried praying to Christian Jehovah
Tried extolling and begging Allah
But I suspect I have lost all my faith
Or fear having my trust broken again

Does anyone feel sympathetic to me?
Do you empathize with my pain?
Then help me get better please!
Or please refer my case to one who can!

To you, I will owe my life!
