Don’t tell me their labels

Labels are bad.
They fool us into thinking that we know
what we don’t know about people.
That tomboyish girl,
She is not a ‘tomboy’.
She loves to be wooed.
That guy in the bar who drank too much,
He is not a ‘drunk’.
He cares about stray dogs.
Do not let the one thing you noticed
decide who they are.

At least, do not tell me their labels.
I can only wonder what mine is.
