I looked in the mirror and I realized I am not the Maiden!
My eyes are older, they see more now than they used to.
My body is not as firm, it dances to the change of the seasons.
My spirit is vibrant and full with a deeper color than the spring.
Like my voice, it has changed and grown to encompass me.
I looked in the mirror and I realized I am not the Mother!
My heart breaks a little as each thought cascades over me…
I am not the Mother… I hear the whisper on the wind “this life…”
My soul is full with the knowledge I am meant to walk another path.
I am not the Mother, but I am not alone.
I looked in the mirror and I realized …
I am the Warrior! I am full of life and vigor!
Battle scarred and shadowed with experience on my heavy brow!
The primal screams of battle on the very edge of my tongue...
I am the war goddess Morrigan! From my lips scores of souls will perish!
And yet, I hold them within, for they are not my words to speak.
I looked in the mirror and I realized I am not the Crone!
She is my Grandmother. She is my future!
Love and respect is what I feel for her… what I owe her!
She is the old woman on the bus waiting to get her groceries who smiles at me.
The eyes of the world contained in a small frail form.
She is the beginning and the end at the same moment in time.
I looked in the mirror and I saw the Goddess.
