I am grateful for the crossroads
here is where change can occur
choices and consequences
here is where we walk our heart
religion is what you do
the crossroads reveal character
intention, mettle, and upbringing
what you live for reveals more
that what you would die for
crossroads no right or wrong
but don’t get left in the liminal
gotta go
you going even if you standing still
you just not going to get nowhere
all praises to the crossroads
where princes become kings
and princesses are separated from queens
I am at a crossroad
I got the dice in my hand
I am grateful
