The Labels of Me

A mother; a girlfriend; a house-cleaner; an employee;
So many labels but which is really me?
I am all these but so much more-
There is a ‘Me’ that gets swept under the floor.
So much to do and so little time
I need a space that is just Mine-
To be free of the labels and be just Me;
That person known only as ‘Heidi’.
So many interests to delve and explore
To read, write, blog and yes, more-
To meditate, reiki heal and trance-sojourn
Too many topics to try and learn!
Times marches on and I find myself caught
In daily routine and snapping retorts
How do I escape this on-going trap?
The Tower! A change! Thunderclap!
Let go, give in, will to surrender
The Universe makes space for me to render
Myself whole, not a divided me:
But each and every ‘label’ integrated-
Heidi, completely.

  1. I can really relate to this Heidi. Very well said 🙂

  2. Many people will empathise with your words. Take a seat and rest a while and let the rest of the world catch up to you. Written on a seat in our garden, I made the seat my Pauline painted the words.

  3. Thank you for this piece of transparency and heart. It is an interesting exercise to identify the labels that we claim or that claim us. To find that place within that integrates ALL is a sweet spot indeed. No thing to give up — ever — until and unless it no longer serves and we let go willingly. Until then – blessings and love, Alia

  4. Second the comment above…..beautiful poem…..light and transparent…..thanks!

  5. Nicely done! I can really relate to this one…

  6. This is an absolutely beautiful poem and I love your rhyme scheme! 😀

  7. I wish to believe in pieces, facets of a complete, brilliant whole. My being-ness is complex, yet simple. All I am is part of me. There is still much to discover and create.

    • Too much to discover, too much to create, and daily life intrudes… I just have to find/keep the ‘whole me’ instead of getting ‘trapped’ in the label!

  8. Hi Heidi,

    Got an idea:

    Call a label council, proclaim yourself Presidential Queen 👑 above all, institute the martial law, hugging to death all who won’t surrender, execute a few, hug them back to life, decree a Universal Labelhood for All, and live happily ever after!😃😃😃

    How does it sound?

    Rom, King of the Stickerhood

  9. I hope you find yourself. We are so many different people but somehow we manage to keep them separate….or mix and match them when necessary. 🙂
