Glorious exceptionalism (an anthem for being different)

Don’t be “the norm”, people! Only Norm is The Norm. Be: The Bob, The Art, The Hal, The Lesley, The Jenn, The Linda Lee, The Wimpy, et al ! Be yourselves.

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

you standout
from the crowd
believe deliverance
trust in difference

come on
you stand,
from the crowd

what is holding you back
have courage, sail
you will, unarguably, fail
many times,
most of the times

just believe,
from the crowd
from the crowd

pick yourself up
dirt will disappear
a new you appear
bask in glory

from the crowd
they are waiting
from the crowd

doubters, shouters
hooters, looters
will feel sorry
for what they did,
they should

from the crowd
you deserve it!

    In tandem with the ‘anthem for being different’, might I add a poem by Throreau that my mom had framed ..they seem to go hand-in-hand…. ‘If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.’ Happy and blessed New Years to all of you wonderful puzzlers in the jumble-verse! jenn

    At the very least, most of us word-nerds seem to be in our own little world, why not our own jumble-verse?!?!? – – – Take care, kiddos!
