Mediocrity

quill

Meet my newest bloggin’ buddy, Julie, at  https://cookiecrumbstoliveby.wordpress.com  Her piece on our current times and circumstances makes total sense, not just globally, but personally, in my every day-to-day encounters.  As a Christian, I’m supposed to be part of a counter-culture, not merely a sub-culture.  But sometimes it’s just so much easier (can you hear my whining?) to wallow in….

 

Mediocrity 

Do not hide yourself behind mediocrity,
while basking in the average of mundane.
Do not opt for the middle of the road while choosing
neither high nor low, fast nor slow.
Do not settle on simply blending in
nor being like all the rest…
For climbing the ladder, rung by rung, will lead you neither up nor down.

Dare rather to choose your side refusing to straddle the fence
Roll up your sleeves and sweat if you must, as the outcome is now dire
Be not afraid to make a stand for Darkness has chosen his
Time is no longer on your side with the stage having long been set
It’s life or death for you my friend yet ignore it if you so chose
For mediocrity loves a crowd for indifference is no stranger…
