Label

Label

 

Directions on washing clothes to be precise

So colours don’t run or garments shrink size

You notice a pair of beautiful shoes, your eye drawn

Labels explain the fit and whether it’s right or wrong

Sadly people too often grouped assigned and labeled

Swept aside categorized diminished and tabled

Perhaps to get a handle on understanding

Was what was meant but ended in branding

Labels diminish cut down and destroy

Applied to humans brings conflict turmoil

There is but one label that fits all mankind

It called being “human” beautifully designed

Please tuck all those labels away, no longer used

So all mankind wherever they are, no more abused

Tempted

Tempted

On many occasions, I have been tempted

E’en though my words might be rejected

To speak my mind, say what I mean

The truth is the truth, nought in between

On many occasions, I have been tempted

To partake of that delicious piece of dessert

Though it would quickly to my hips transport

It smells so heavenly, looks so divine

I’m sure the flavour is simply sublime

Tempted on occasions too many to recount

Steadfast remain, I remind myself throughout

For though the temptation often is great

The resultant problems it would create

Must be considered part of the equation

Inner turmoil overcome, it is self-determination
