Look like a fool, they say Though we often act in dismay To what, will this serve? And why does doing this tug at every nerve? It is the foolish that seeks to learn It is through their actions that we discern With mistakes, they gather points And from these, they create joints In the moment, they're easy to ridicule Until we realize, it is the big picture to which they school Take time to enjoy the full life Keep balance and engage in hardship and strife. When taking daring risks in life, I've come to enjoy the role of the fool. There was a time when I tried to avoid it but life taught me that it's required for success. When failure came about, ridicule only hurt when I chose to lose focus of my purpose. I'm always here to learn and mistakes offer the greatest lessons. When the people I work with hang on to perfectionism, it drives me mad because I know that they could miss so much and no amount of planning or knowledge will control the outcome of life.
