The Flower

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, April 14, 2010, In : Poetry 
~One from the archives.  Enjoy!~
 
We start from the beginning
small and learning
trying to grow and figure out
our way to the sunlight
 
The dirt is so warm
and also cooling
it stores our roots
those things that build us
 
But we need care
water, sunlight, nutrients
our development is slow but steady
we learn as we grow
 
Now we change
stem, leaves and brightness
we're so green and bright
we seem the same but are unique
 
Rain will come and go
Sun will dry us off
We deal with light ...

Let Forgiveness Be Your Guide

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, March 18, 2010, In : Poetry 
Let forgiveness be your guide.
Don't worry about who is wrong
or who happens to be right.
Give the gift of letting go.
 
Let forgiveness be your guide.
Don't chain yourself to the past.
Let yourself be free of the thoughts.
Give the gift of peace.
 
Let forgiveness be your guide.
A shift in thought can
make the situation different.
Give the gift of clear vision.
 
Let forgiveness be your guide.
Show a sign of strength
and use that power for good.
Give the gift of healing.

I Get Knocked Down

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, March 15, 2010, In : Poetry 
I get knocked down.
I am shocked, stunned,
my hands are bruised,
but I struggle to my feet.

I get knocked down.
I am hurt, crying,
my body is weary,
but I claw my way back.

I get knocked down.
I am angry, gritting my teeth,
my back is strained,
but I pull myself up.

I get knocked down.
I am defensive, ready to fight,
my legs are sore,
but I won't stay down.

I get knocked down.
I am peaceful, graceful,
my body is solid,
and I rise to my strength.

I get knocked down
but nothing will keep m...

Welcome Back, Dear Sun

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, March 14, 2010, In : Poetry 
~One from the archives.  Enjoy!~
 
I watched the Sun go down
the light was fading and I felt my fear
It was now darkness
I never thought I'd see the light again
It seemed to take so long
for the brightness to come back
I saw flickers in the shadows
but never a full fledged light
and I thought the light had left me
I could hear nothing
it was so quiet
it was like the earth had abandoned me
I was alone, dark, quiet,
how long would it last?
 
But time passed
even if it was slow
it still passed
I...

You Are Powerful

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, February 19, 2010, In : Spiritual 

You are powerful.

You get through the hard times.

You move with grace.

You still fight when exhausted.


You are powerful.

You have an endless well of strength,

even when you feel like it's dry,

you manage to find more.


You are powerful

waking up every day

turning your face to the sun

and saying "I can face it"


You are powerful.

Helping others in need,

smiling even in pain,

staying positive in the rain.


You are powerful

even when you don't know you are.

So believe in yourself

that you can handle

whatever comes yo...

The Hole

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, December 20, 2009, In : Spiritual 
I'm already at the bottom
I look up, see the light
how do I get out of here?
the shovel is not going to help
 
I wonder why I thought
it was best to keep digging
did I want to be hidden?
did I want someone to not find me?
 
But now that I am here
I feel no better, the perspective is darker
There has been no improvement
actually, things have gotten worse
 
So now I have to find a way out
I have to climb back up to the top
and as much work as it took to go down
it will take even more work to ge...

Don't Fall

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, November 24, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Don't Fall
it may be easy to drop
but you can't rise up
if you head below
 
Don't Fall
it may be easy to stop
but you can't move forward
if you give in
 
Don't Fall
it may be easy to let go
but you can't achieve
if you let it beat you
 
Don't Fall
it may be easy to give up
but you can't make progress
if you let them win
 
Don't Fall
it may be easy to believe the lies
but you can't find the truth
if you buy into the words outside you
 
Don't Fall
fight for what's important
keep your head up
an...

Stand Up

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, November 13, 2009,

Stand Up
to all the voices
that create doubt and sadness
 
Stand Up
to all the people
who tell you dreams are impossible
 
Stand Up
to the distractions
that try to derail you from your mission
 
Stand Up
to the past hurt
that holds you back from the present
 
Stand Up
to the fear
that makes challenges appear real
 
Stand Up
for yourself
no one else will do it for you
 
Stand Up
get on your feet
stand tall, proud and strong
and let no one knock you down

This Woman

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, October 7, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Like the Phoenix, she rises again.
the ashes represent her past.
They lie on the ground,
flying away into the calming wind.
 
Like a Scorpion, she stings.
her needle makes a direct hit.
They feel the pain of her wrath,
her point has been made.
 
Like a Horse, she runs
moving quickly through the fields.
Her hair blows with the breeze,
her beauty and grace is in her movement.
 
Like a Butterfly, she flutters.
Her wings, small, yet powerful.
She flies through the air,
gliding across the sky, lo...
