|S o beautifully real and heart touching! I can deeply relate to this. I hope you got some sort of direction from God. . .
whether it be a bird landing on your shoulder to sing out "Your OK" or a dream where Love embraces you until the Light of day.
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|Such strength and personal profession and acknowledgement of purpose and direction, Sheila, yet temporarily at the crossroads of confusion. I like how you show that even those strong and self-assured need the external guidance of omnipotence to truly make use of powers that lie within. Leadership is a lonely path and it is the good and humble prophet and visionary who looks not inwards but upwards at such times. Excellently conceived and expertly crafted. xx|

|To be at the crossroads? Gosh, i'm in my late forties now yet i'll be honest to say that i still get confused and uncertain and afraid. So i totally agree with you that everyone needs Divine intervention when one finds himself at the crossroads. Heartfelt, Sheila. Love and peace in Christ.

|Boy, do I know the feelin' !! Get pulled in so many directions, don't we? Be easy to stand at the crossroads 'til it's too late. Go that way, could be trouble. Go right? Go left? Stay on the straightaway?
Real thought-provoker you have written, my friend.
Don't forget to detour to smell the roses,

this is very introspective
and you bravely
let you emotions show here...
And the rhyme and meter
reads so smoothly...
"My heart sags, not beating, exhausted from being pinned the catalyst.
All the Dominoes go tumbling, and the pieces get lost in the mist..."
---this is a superb line...
you have expressed yourself
very creatively here...
i love this...

|crossroads are monumental
and your words within here reach us deeply
embracing the nature of our fragility
we all have met "The Crossroads"
and your words are so beautifully surrendering

|Sheila, you have laid out the emotions bare with honesty -- there are always boulders in our way -- we must climb them one at a time or carefully navigate around them -- one boulder, one step at a time -- never losing sight of our dreams, and the guidance from our faith -- peace and love be always with you my friend -- Jon Michael|

|How am I supposed to navigate when my perspective is askew?
A feeling many of us have had in life, at least a time or two.

I have picked a card for you my dear, from my oracle deck of Dolphins and Mermaids, (I have been helping many people these last few days)
Here's what I picked after reading your poem:
"Self Forgiveness" (a mermaid picture)
"Let go of the old guilt, and remember that you're God's perfect child" You've been very hard on yourself lately using harsh words toward yourself verbally or mentally, While it's healthy to hold yourself up to high standards, this card says that you've bordered on self-abuse! Everyone makes mistakes, and it's normal to feel regret occasionally. What's important though, is how you handle these mistakes. As you focus on your positive attributes, your self-esteem will increase and your stress level will be diminished. Remember that guilt is the opposite of love. Your guilt doesn't help anyone or anything, but your Divine Love helps everyone, everywhere! Affirm: "I ask that all effects of my mistakes be undone in all directions of time, and I now release all guilt completely. I love my true self, from top to bottom."
I hope this card helps you My dear friend, because you are a beautiful woman with much to offer the Universe!!!
Much peace, love, and light,

|The pathway ahead is riddled with boulders, and grass reaching for blue.
How am I supposed to navigate when my perspective is askew?
I think you express a universal and timeless theme in this world/life/dimension, Sheila. I find your earnest prayer/plea/questions soul-stirring and meaningful and I can completely relate as I am sure many others will as well. Thank you. Love, hugs, and my very best wishes to you,

|If the den were to offer a prize for origianality and intense emotional and reflective writing this poem would definately be in the top running. It has been too long since you posted last but you certainly make up for it when you do...Well done Shiela, great piece.
|Reviewed by John Flanagan
|the spiritual examination and the honesty you bring to the table are so satisfying and worthwhile..."...notes are sharp..and they have a way of seeping beneath my skin" - very fine, Sheila.
