Each Morning is New: Poetry by Diane Maietta

This poem is about living. It’s about abandoning the enablement we give to negative energies, allowing them to overwhelm us, keeping our thoughts and emotions clouded in sorrow and loss.

Each Morning is New

To stand unclothed in my soul; in my being before

The Sun, the Moon, the Stars,

Before the Heavens, and the

Enigma of time—

     For redemption.

     For the savior of the meaning of my life.


To close my eyes

     And stretch out my arms

     And rest my head on

     The full understanding

     Of my actions & shortcomings.

To die and be born again with the

Celebration of hope and renewed

Strength: a firm resolve in the definite

Purpose of dissolving fear.


     To be strong in standing alone as a

     human being.


To release all my burdens

And believe that

Life is truly meant to be

—loved by it, loved with it, loved for it.

Not half-broken,

Not drifting aimlessly,

Not forsaken.


These are the days of wonder

They always were.  They always will be.


Each morning is new, as each twilight is recreated.

     The world is alive:

     On Earth, as it is in Heaven—

     Above our heads and below our feet.

     In the words of prophets, poetry, and wisdom.


As we are born, so shall we die,

And find life again;

Find breath again…


When doubt, and worry, and fear

Sit on my shoulder and tempt me

Into some deep, sinful sorrow, …

How beautiful to stand unclothed in my soul;

In my being before the Sun…
