Can I Just - Poem by Jeff Gangwer

Everybody wants me to be something for someone—
Or somebody for something else—

But can I just be a man for today—
Without the rules of today?

Can I just step out from the sliding glass door—
Out to my own backyard—

So I can be free from
The hats and labels of society?

Can I just mosey about without shoes or socks
And let the blades of the grass slip between my toes...?

Can I just be me for a change—
If only for today...?
