April Fool’s Day

For today,

it is okay to be a fool,

to act foolish

to put aside fears of being thought a fool. 


For today,

it is okay to risk.

Foolishness is a small price to pay

for all that we desire. 


For today,

nothing is serious,

nothing is forever,

nothing can hurt us. 


For today,

life is simply a leap into the unknown,

yesterdays to be rediscovered,

tomorrows to be created.


Tomorrow is our safety net. 

But for today,

Just for today,

I choose the fool and

wonderful is within my grasp.


For today,

I hope tomorrow never comes.
