The Path, Your Path

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, July 6, 2010, In : Poetry 

Walking your own path

may not be easy

but it is the only path

you truly have.


Sure, you could follow

another person laying down

their idea of your path

but it'll make you feel like you're crawling.


Why not create your own path?

Letting someone else do it

takes away your ability

to see how well you can build it.


Parts of it may be brick or

even shards of broken glass

but it is yours to build

even if you're not sure how or where it leads.


No matter how you create i...

The Journey

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, May 26, 2010, In : Poetry 

The journey is never a straight path.
It moves in twists and turns,
rough terrains, bumps, potholes,
crossroads, detours and stop signs.


The journey is never a short trip.
Do you have it all? Did you pack everything?
Make sure you have your umbrella.
You may need it for rainy days.

The journey is never without help.
You'll meet people along the way -
they may travel a short distance
or take the whole trip with you.

The journey is never without hope.
No matter what stormy we...

If You Stay Here

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, May 22, 2010, In : Poetry 

If you stay here
you will not learn
because knowledge comes
from mastering the lessons

If you stay here
you will not grow
because maturity comes
from pushing your limits

If you stay here
you will not change
because shifting comes
from beautiful movement

If you stay here
you will not realize
because awareness comes
from opening your eyes

If you stay here
you will not shine
because light comes
from the universal flame

If you stay here
you will not breathe
because air comes...

A New Path

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, March 21, 2010, In : Poetry 
The road comes to an end.
You have gone as far as you go.
So now you are standing,
wondering if you should turn around
or find another way?
There are other paths around you.
Which road will you take?
Which way will you go?
It is possible you'll stay where you are
or even go back to where you just were
and walk the same road over again?
There is always a new path,
a detour, a different road to walk.
You chose which way to go.
You chose which path to take.
You chose the journey,...

You Were Meant

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, November 22, 2009, In : Spiritual 

You were meant for greatness
don't doubt the power within
you have much to give
to those around you
You were meant for happiness
don't doubt the joy within
you have many moments to laugh
and smile so bright
You were meant for love
don't doubt the feelings within
you love and cherish many
family and friends encircle you
You were meant to leave your mark
don't doubt your impact
your kind words and open hands
will lift all those your come in contact with
You were meant to be beautiful

Spirit Said

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, November 9, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Spirit Said,
"You are a beautiful being of light"
and I said
"But it seems so dark, I have no sight"
Spirit Said,
"Your soul is perfect right now"
and I said
"But I have so much to do, so many more vows"

Spirit Said,
"You're learning your lessons well"
and I said
"But I mess up constantly, I can never tell!"
Spirit Said,
"You are a gift to all you meet"
and I said
"But I have conflicts, troublesome relationships I repeat!"
Spirit Said,
"Your heart is open as wide as the sky"
and I said
