Apart from the crowd

Spread the love

It all comes down to what we term as occult
and weird; the struggle to keep in touch with
plausible and real, while some of us see there’s 
no telling whats next, would you follow all that
preached even if mind is found perplexed?

Amid the dull, mundane we appear as odd and
queer; our voice though low at first, in time is
bold and clear. The world at length will chide if
we dare to persevere; care not if echoes squall
upon your throbbing ears.

In empty, mocking thicket plunge sterling spear;
Adopt a path defiant above life of doubt and fear.

    Sanaa, I know you were sending me prompts, but my FB has been put on hold as I re-examine my commitment to… all things “weird.” Thanks to you, I am linking up with Poets United on this prompt.

    I love your thoughts here. You seize the words, “odd,” and “queer,” and you bend them to your will. Well done, you! Love, Amy

    Being weird is an advantage for no one will ever take you for granted as you will often surprise. It is the weird people that will change the world.

    “In empty, mocking thicket plunge a sterling spear;

    That missing link between the undecipherable and the decipherable. Its grey and weird because we cannot possibly understand, interpret or restrict it within known parameters. You’ve defined the word weird very intelligently.
