The Key To Me

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, June 17, 2010 Under: Poetry
Where is it?
The key that unlocks
the dreams and talents
in my heart.
That key, I've been
search for it for a while.
I looked high and low,
in other people's eyes
and the gurus and friends
I admire.
I heard many talks,
I sifted through many books,
still looking for my key.
I thought someone else had it.
One day, I hoped, someone would
put it in my hands and say
"You are ready".
So I waited, waited,
hemmed and hawed,
made excuses,
"Oh it will come one day".
Each day, I would wonder,
if today was the day
I would receive my key.
And as I asked one day,
"Am I ever going to get the chance
to unlock who I am and
what I truly want?"
It was silent
but then I realized.
Those dreams I have,
those thoughts of my future,
the healing, my greatest passions,
were all ready to be released.
I was leaving the lock closed,
not anyone else.
The key was already at
in my heart, ready to be turned.
I just had to do it.
And now I know
I've found the key -
the key to me.
