Biography of Carla Murray
I've had a very difficult life, but throughout it all, I can say I've been richly blessed as well. I started writing at the age of 9, but only have all of my writing since I was 20, and believe me, that is a great deal. I come out of extreme childhood abuse and while going through my healing journey, my beloved husband of 23 yrs was tragically killed in a plane crash. So I am a widow. I became a Christian 31 yrs ago and the Lord is a very important part of my life. Although I love to write poetry, I am actually an article writer and write for a trauma magazine. I also lead a support group for women in emotional pain in my church and have a heart for women in pain. I could not do this if I had not been abused, as my healing journey taught me a great deal, so I can look back and see how blessed I am because of my childhood. I wish it had been different, but it wasn't. Today I am content and at peace and I have forgiven my multiple perpetrators.
I love to hike and am training to do a 49 mile,6 day hike in July of 2012. I have some very good friends whom I am grateful for. I have two wonderful and crazy yellow labs whom I sometimes write humor about, because what else can you write about these wonderful dogs.
My husband and I traveled all over a great deal of the world with backpacks and two books and had great experiences. So I am very grateful for my freedom. I love life and enjoy it as much as possible.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
Carla Murray Poems
Boundless Love Prose
As I look back at my life, there are no words in my mouth, but there is now a sparkle in my eye that you must see. A skip in my step that was never there, and almost always a smile on my lips, keeping back the laughter held deep inside my throat, waiting to escape. But you know that, don’t you? You realize this, as you are a wise man. I have found my way at last in a world that can be cruel and unforgiving. For as I fell, you would reach out your hand and help me stand. And as I collapsed, you would lift me up, so I could walk again. And today, I can walk alone, and you understand.
Inside The Veil
Inside shadows and crevices live memories Some live inside a veil Some jump out and capture me in talons While others scratch the surface reminding me they remain
The Biggest Miracle
Miracles surround me everyday Through the beautiful clouds in the sky To the green grass between my toes And the splendor of a sunrise
Inside The Veil
Inside shadows and crevices live memories
Some live inside a veil
Some jump out and capture me in talons
While others scratch the surface reminding me they remain
Lingering, waiting to be uncovered and remembered
Beyond my consciousness they live
Inside my emotions
