Should I If I Should? - Poem by Aaron Restua

Out of the depths,
I grasp for freedom;
Roaring like a lion,
And Searching...

Searching for a truth
That must be part of me...

Not of those who say what I should be;
Not of those who say what I must be.

But Should I be what they say I should be?

I guess not...

I feel not...

I hope not!

I am my own being,
Subjected only
To the foremost of my kind.

And no one else.
