Forsake the Labels
by Jason Tomlinson

Sometimes cowards are brave
they forget their fear rescue and save
sometimes the ugly are beautiful to behold
they forget their imperfections and step forward as gold
sometimes the mean are kind
they forget their impatience relax and unwind
sometimes the selfish serve
they forget themselves and others they observe
and sometimes an idiot has a useful thought
he forgets his stupidity and good ideas are wrought
may we all do what we didn’t think we could
may we all forsake the labels that keep us from doing good
