Spirit As Human, Human As Spirit

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, July 14, 2010 Under: Poetry

I am a Spirit

in a human body

when you tear away the flesh

you see the best

and most sacred of me.

No matter if you hurt me,

love me, hate me or adore me,

I am who I am.

I cannot be changed,

unless I want to change,

I cannot be knocked down,

unless I let you get the best of me,

I cannot be uplifted,

unless I turn my eyes and heart to the sky,

I cannot be who I am,

unless I allow myself to be.

I am a Spirit,

no more and no less,

because a Spirit

is all I need to be.

Sure, I need to meet my human needs

of the life I live, the friends

and family I love and the

quests I undertake,

but all I have to have a balance

with Spirit's sweet song,

and decide who I want to be.

I want to be a part of Spirit

and truly, who I am meant to be.
