Spring Water

I put the sugar in the jug

and wonder if it cares

that the label I have chosen

is so far from the truth.

But that matters not really

since sugar cannot care

that it now resides

in an empty water jug,

but people care

and people have feelings

so obviously people

are different from sugar.

Society does not take note

that there are differences indeed

since they still place labels

that are sure to mislead.

There are so many labels

a person is made to bear,

but on the inside is sweetness

if we’d only look and not stare.
