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.

    Is it foolish to choose to be the fool? With eyes wide open, it makes pretty good sense to me.
