Fortune Cookies Don’t Lie 

This is a moment of your reality
‘stay in touch above all with what you feel’
what you feel is yours alone, shared by no one

You might speak of your feeling only to gasp
with a lack of understanding that comes to view
by one not in touch with reality of his own mind

- Rhoda Galgiani

Dear Rhoda, I see a deep and powerful message here in your well-written poem. No matter what, we have to try to stay true to our own feelings. When others dominate us, we become unhappy. Been there. Excellent poem, Rhoda. Love, Carolyn Devonshire

Rhoda, I Loved your poem. This old negro spiritual came to my mind. "No body knows the trouble I've seen, Nobody knows but Jesus." I also am reminded of a quote by Shakespeare. "To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man." I may well have misinterpreted it but these are the thoughts that came to my mind. Your poem is well written and thank you for sharing it, All roads for me lead to Jesus.
Love, Charlene
