He says to do this
She says listen close
He tells me not to

My mind is boggled
I don't know who to follow
Too many choices

Forget what they say
Don't be a follower: Lead
Always tall and proud

Why follow their rules
When you can create your own
New Expectations

Escape social norms
What is "normal" anyway?
No more boundaries

Stay true to yourself
And hang on for a wild ride
Think and live freely

A path will emerge
You will find ones who love you
You will find passion

You control yourself
It's not about fitting in
It is standing out

It's been a while since I've done a haiku. How was it?
