"Blue Highway at the Cross Roads" When the child finds the imprints, the child will place its feet firmly in the Love marked, for the child alone brick walls along the Blue Highway to be smashed like teeth - to be broken, alone in pieces, learnt slow, independent is the only way to grow, in the child inner strength knows the true mother knows the tears that flow she sees her child always in her dreams butterflies and boilermakers flying monkeys and creeps courage is borne through belief in the child waking, to wake not too late the child becomes beautiful in the heart more aware of what love is she learns this where the fear of loss starts a smile will grow slowly again, always love in the heart is open like heaven the memories flood a life like rain rushing down magnetised minds stories and songs so much stolen, so much lost time, taken children and mothers conquer tombs they follow maps drawn a child commanding, the adult in her - steers with dignity her own boat the child will follow what was seen long before in before time dreams where there existed no walls marked “No” and to know fully what is absent for the child will understand eventually, the mother arrived before her she travelled the same road the mother knows the child, this, the child knows to listen to what the heart tells is to learn wisdom, courage - is required for this it's in caverns labyrinthine and deep oceans not shallow rock pools and babbling streams where jewels and pearls of wisdom grow begin to realise truth through lies and dreams resistance to falsehoods and following her own tomes brings broken roads to her, yet – detours, gifts to her own way home understanding of the one before her blooms, it grows eventually peace is seen, and held, for it is known what the truth, truly is the mind through truth knows what the heart truly thinks one must be water like tears and oceans gentle as soft rain and hard as storms - release resistance for love and peace like water must move with the flow electric mind, there is lightening bringing back to life heart fibrillating - to move forward reigning within the heart, love eventually flows to hold always - hard onto Hope, golden chord, Faith it never breaks it never lets go put in the pocket next to her heart seeds of what the one before her, the one who loves her most, sows faith inside the heart grows the child trusts again, she follows the golden chord the story told by Blue Faery long ago hidden rainbows truth and knowledge wait for the child now into woman grows journeys her forward along her own road where the one who loves her most waits patiently heart wide open waiting patiently for her barefoot where the sign reads, Blue Highway at the Cross Roads (LadyLabyrinth/ 2021) 7th Christmas “Surrender” (feat.

The mind, through truth knows what the heart truly thinks...and she knows, Lee-Ann, the love you have for her. I trust the barefoot imprints you left behind will lead her in life through the right paths. Wishing you and your daughter a Merry Christmas! Love & Hugs Messina

Thank you for that kind thought Charles. I hope you are having a peaceful, joyful Christmas. I read somewhere, quite a while back now, some religious / spiritual read, that our lives (or the lives of our souls) have already been mapped out for us, predestined. We have all been gifted with ‘free will’ to make our own choices and decisions in life, as part of a pre-ordained mission to ‘learn’ something from our experiences. When I consider how my daughter was born and when she was born, I have to believe there is a higher source of power involved. The birth of a child is miraculous in itself, but some births ascend miracles and there is a message to be delivered to exact some higher blessing and gift. Take Jesus' birth for example, or the Buddha’s.

The exact timing/date and occurrence of my daughter’s birth was a beautiful message to me, from a higher power, and she was certainly a profound and glorious gift. My daughter has always hated the date of her birth, but I think this is something she should love immensely and be most proud of the alignment.

Some of the ugliest and most brutal wars occur in countries torn by war, children and parents lose their lives and are separated and displaced. Some of the most vicious wars, fought pre and post family law court, sadly see the loss of children and parents lives as well, through the evisceration of relationships; murder, suicide, ptsd, cptsd and other mental disorders result, to smother entirely good relationships between child and parent and profoundly impact the lives of children and their parents and significantly impact their quality of 'living'. It is commonly referred to as ‘parental alienation’. These are the deadly silent wars, where truth is buried by profound lies, manipulation and alienation of the child from good parent. In itself, it is a form of child abuse and one of the worst types of emotional abuse, of child and of the alienated target (usually the parent, but can involve an extended member of family, or entire family).

In some cases, it is true, if the parent is indeed a bad parent, let’s say for example, child sex offender, domestic violence perpetrator, drug addict/alcoholic, then one could understand the separation of child from parent.

However, there are very good parents, that do not fall into the category of ‘bad’ parent, that are removed, for no good reason at all, through narcissistic control. It is hard on the parent, but I believe, it is most harder on the child. Good mothers and good fathers are caught unawares in this war, usually – because they, through their high level of empathy, or in some cases complete ignorance of the truth, usually ‘trust’ too much a personality/personalities that are of a much lower vibration.

People say if you are a good parent you must fight harder for your children; some parents in this alienated target position, who love their children ‘unconditionally’, will stop fighting, for the child’s sanity and well being. There comes a time in life, in any event, where the child grows to adult and one has to let them move on to make their own decisions and choices, their own mistakes and victories. If a child understands that a parent loves them beyond doubt and knows that love is unconditional, and can distinguish truth from lies and know that nothing can truly sever the bonds of strong love – that child / children, will reach out in their own way in their own time. Some might say, well what if that never happens? say you die before that happens?; I still say - nothing can ever sever that bond, it will make its way to you in the most miraculous ways, even after life. From parent to child; from child to parent. Eventually that love and reconciliation, makes its way "Home".

The children suffer the worst for the loss of a good parent by those who insist on using the child as an object of winning a victory. I am thankful my daughter and I are still alive and standing, through the many journeys and lessons we have been through and will continue to go through inevitably, moving forward. Mistakes are not failures, they are learning opportunities to grow to become the best versions of ourselves.

This is a poem for my daughter and I; however, it is also for any other parent, who is a ‘good’ parent, or one who has fallen by the wayside, but has regrouped themselves to a state of ‘living’ where they are that ‘very good parent’ wanting re-connection. Most importantly, it is also for all those other children missing their parent. Christmas is an especially hard time for those children and their parents separated by alienation.

We are all on our own journeys, our mission is to learn – usually it is about the one word. And that word is “LOVE” (it spreads its umbrella over other words, such as forgiveness, trust, faith, hope, belief, patience, respect, loyalty, to name a few). Merry Christmas to those children and parents without each other/missing each other. And merry Christmas to you Charles. There endeth the sermon for the day, :) Reverend Lovejoy, perhaps I should be studying ‘Theology/Philosophy'. Love At Christmas 2021, Leanne Xx
