I Am Free To Be Me

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, September 19, 2010, In : thoughts 

I am free to be me.

Removing the binds

that I have held myself.

It is a journey of lessons

and times of doubt but

I stay committed to the path.

There is more to me that I show.

 Can I show it to you? Ready?

Each day that I honor me

I am lighter, happier.

I wrapped my arms around

all those part of me

that I love and didn’t like.

There may be others

that don’t understand

or even like me

but if I am strong

Layer Upon Layer

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, May 17, 2010, In : Poetry 

You can't see me.

I have layer upon layer

surrounding me.

They are all different

colors, shapes and sizes,

hiding me, keeping me safe inside.

As time as gone on,

I can feel them getting heavy.

I carry them around anyway.

They get old, they fray, they tear

but I hold on to them,

these layers.

Because, well, what would happen

if you see me?

In fact, what would happen

if I actually saw myself?

I'm not sure what is underneath anymore.

As I have been hiding from you,

In My Hands

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, March 23, 2010, In : Poetry 
I have it within my hands
and hard work creates magic
so I must make it happen.
Take some time,
love and care,
determination and smarts,
and create what I want.
I know it won't be easy.
In fact, I am a little scared,
worried and nervous,
but my heart tells me
to press forward.
And so I do.
I open my eyes
to the possibilities,
I roll up my sleeves
and weave a beautiful web,
I transform it into
a colorful tapestry and then,
with it still in my hands,
I have a choice.
Should I release...

Be Still

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, August 9, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Be still.
Wait on the attack.
Your words are like swords,
be careful who and why you cut.

Be still.
Wait for the words.
Silence can bring out truth from others,
listen and hear what they say.

Be still.
Wait for the sign.
Spirit wants you to know you're cared for,
they "talk" to you in many different ways.

Be still.
Wait for the healing.
You don't have to move fast,
moving with purpose will keep those wounds closed.

Be still.
Wait for the laughter.
Lighten your heart and soul,
with chuckle...
