The Voices

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, March 28, 2010 Under: Poetry

When you dream, dream big.

Shut out those voices that tell you

"You can't", "You won't", "You'll fail"

because they don't know.

In fact, they are just talking

without any thought.

When you think about

what you want to accomplish,

you have an idea,

something that you want to grow.

And you have a plan, details, a schedule,

all things that will build to your success.


Those voices, they just have opinions.

They are full of chatter and noise.

They are like word weights and

verbal restraints that hold you back,

dragging you down into the negativity

and safety of where you are.

But is where you are the only place to be?


Throw them off, let the voices fall

to the ground and walk into

your reality lighter, happier and freer.

Your dream isn't just in the clouds,

it sits right in your heart.

Release it with bold delight

and let those voices

be swept far away with the wind.
