Mis-Labeled - Poem by Laurence Overmire

Why should a man or woman be
This or that alone
Boxed into some corner of a finite mind
We are all
Complex, contradictory
Creatures improperly displayed
On the mantles of our own
Significant delusions.

Each person’s mystery is unique
And each one's reasoning
Woefully uncertain
In its quivering grasp of human nature.

(Previously published in Webstatic, Sept.1999: Poetry the Write Way Anthology, Writers Club Press,2000)
