The Compass From the Heart
By Nancy Rodriquez

When we journey with the compass from the heart,
We put our trust in the Universe,
No matter near or far ,
Our  love is not rehearsed,
It is the truest emotion of our souls.
This compass guides and nourishes,
Like nothing we have known before.
As we seek relief from the bitterness the world gives out as a dish,
We do not need to partake of the bitter,
We make the good,
Establishing the truth,
In everything we do,
What was meant to be setbacks and insecurities’,
Stir us into finding our higher
Selves, and Victory is sweet
To it’s palette once again.

    I absolutely loved your poem, "The Compass From the Heart," Nancy! Your diction is beautifully rich, and the metaphors you've used resonate deeply. It's like you've painted a beautiful scenario that helps readers to journey within themselves guided by the compass of the heart—it's very stunning indeed. I particularly adore your lines 'We do not need to partake of the bitter, / We make the good', it speaks volumes about human resilience, creativity, and the power of positivity.

    As for a few suggestions for improvements, consider working on the rhythm and punctuation of the poem. At times, the flow seems a bit disjointed, which can distract from the overall experience. Also, the phrase 'What was meant to be setbacks and insecurities’ feels slightly awkward in its current structure. Maybe you could reword it to something like 'What was meant to induce setbacks and insecurities'.

    Finally, you can look into weaving in some more visually descriptive language to set the scene and create a sensory experience for your readers. Other than this, your creative use of language, as well as the positivity and hope encapsulated within your writing, is admirable. Keep up the wonderful work!
