Is humility more nimble than pride? The Titanic Lessons!

When life seems titanic like

And the dilemma is staring at you

in the most glamorous colors of sarcasm

When crossroads is not a special defining moment

but here and now

Then , infusing control is no longer

a choice

refuse being vestigial

redefine your trajectory

replug the hole in your hull

reaffirm the knot in your anchor

and set sail

strong, adrift

it is new voyage, a new wind

resurface the belief


not every Titanic is fated to break into two

not every growler is destined to write a tragedy

remember too that

ironically, the Titanic’s toughest lesson

was yet again that

humility is more nimble than pride

it was her size,900 feet of ego

from bow to stern that

prevented the captain

from steering her on path,agile enough

when that tiny point of ice hit her

where it punched a hole

inconceivable to her makers

Your Maker, though

provided for differently

with an embedded buoyancy

and that periodic vulnerability, your fears

All being His devices

He engineered to allow sustenance

even with imperfections

for disasters, abandoned journeys

and turnarounds

You can absorb, embody more scars

and of larger magnitude than you know

therefore Go forward, Embark
