Words and thoughts in devotion to the Divine

The Faces of the Morrigan

1 Comment

Those who say you are made only of

murder and mayhem,

battle and blood–

they do not know you.

That is who you are, yes,

but it is not all of who you are.

 

You sing to us of what

will become the future,

telling tales of war and peace,

life and death,

success and failure,

and in your hands you hold

the knowledge of the warp and weft

of what is yet to come.

 

You guide he who is to be king

into that position,

conferring the role of sovereign

onto that man both blessed and cursed

with the dread yet awesome weight

of responsibility for a nation.

 

There is so much more to you

than violence and death,

though I do not dispute that these

are essential parts of your nature,

but you are not a one-note caricature,

and those who think you are

need to spend more time

getting to know you,

seeing all your faces,

and acknowledging you as much

‘Foreteller’ as ‘Frenzy’,

as much ‘Kingmaker’ as ‘Killer’,

and as much ‘Victorious’ as ‘Venomous’.

 

These are names by which

you might be known by,

and it is not until one

can know all of you that

they truly do you honor.

One thought on “The Faces of the Morrigan

  1. Wonderful! I am so sick of people who see Her only as one aspect and say not to go there! She is wonderful and strong and can be a great ally.
