Crimson Tide

You may feel that you are the odd man out,

a fish out of water,

a freakish anomaly;


set the pace.

Be the thermostat

in a world of


Be one with Galileo,

and accurately read the heavens

while conventions sleep.

We will follow your lead

into uncharted places,

where life’s secrets lurk


true beauty

runs red, a crimson tide…

        I think it’s Lots More Fun–don’t know why that seems to be a well-kept secret…do you?

        Being in the ‘crowd’ is highly overrated! Read an interesting article last week about how we ‘socialize’ children too soon – we tend to create children who aren’t secure in themselves and add to the probability of them becoming assimilated as a group. Interesting thought…I just know that somehow we are afraid of being the odd man out until we are really sure of who we are – then it doesn’t much matter! Age and wisdom sure seem to help!

        Well, that’s true. I spent miserable decades not fitting in, feeling too strange for words. I had no “inner core” then–technically I was a Christian, but no “substance–infilling of the Holy Spirit”. And not enough “age” on me! Now I don’t worry about proving myself, or “popularity”–except when I get up and there are only 10 emails re my blog! Oh NO!

        I tell my kids I am checking my blog to see if anyone ‘likes’ me… a guaranteed teen-angst eye-roll, if ever there was one, is sure to follow… ๐Ÿ™‚

    This one seems prophetic to me and I love it! God bless you, Melody, as you be our thermostat!

  3. A very inspirational poem calling for qualities of uniqueness and leadership. Well writen. ๐Ÿ™‚
