Standing At A Crossroads

                                             Standing at the crossroads before,
                                             My life is in misery to the very core,
                                          Not knowing what kind of path I choose,
                                            To make the changes I like the most.

                                             Undecided where my life leads me,
                                        I just go on walking to the unknown way,
                                       Obstacles may happen as I move forward,
                                     But I overcome all because I am not a coward.

                                           Many times I felt the pain in my heart,
                                            As I did my goals from the very start,
                                            But miracles happens if you believed,
                                          Pains and disappointments finally healed.

                                           I prayed hard to our Almighty Creator,
                                          To give me strength to do in His honor,
                                   So that whatever cross may put on my shoulders,
                                 I did it successfully and share my blessings to others.

    Oh, I've almost missed this wonderful write of yours my dear friend, Mary. I love this poem especially the picture portrayed on the third and fourth stanza. I've also written one on this theme 2 days ago but I can't post yet because I'm quite skeptical on its form. By the way, wish you the best of luck and win in the contest! More power always! love/hugs:) Norie
