Do Not Label Me

It’s about acceptance, differences and love. Thanks to Soul Gifts for reminding us we are ‘unlabelable’…that, my friends, is a new word that even I can’t pronounce.

soulgifts - Telling Tales

do not label

I may be

Black or white or yellow

Or any shades between

Do not label me

*

I may be

Hetero or metro or gay

Or any shades between

Do not label me

do not label 2

I  may be

young or old or adult

or any shades between

Do not label me

*

I may be

Muslim or Christian or Agnostic

or any shades between

Do not label me

do not label 3

I may be

many shades of differentness

Underneath that label

whatever it may be

I am just like you

and you and you

*

Labels tend to

stick and stay

And leave a sticky mess

so

 hard

to remove

do not label 1

So best

not to

 label me  at all

Just call me

by

my

name

*

and add an

adjective or two

if there be a need

to describe

something

more

that

paints a picture

of my

essence

        Who are we as human beings to label each others and judge one another??
        It touched me. Really.
