working with a mother goddess means
watching Her bear Her claws at your enemies
so you learn how to bear yours next time;
working with a mother goddess means
standing up to bullies and bigotry
and feeling Her warm smile on your skin;
but working with a mother goddess also means
saying something cruel or thoughtless
and feeling Her chilly disappointment;
working with a mother goddess means
stumbling like a cub for a time
so you can one day run like a lion
