'Today you are you, and that's truer than true. There's no one alive that's youer than you." Dr. Seuss

Who are you?
Do you know?
Or is it too hard to find?


To seem free
To the world
Yet encaged in your mind.


Who am I?
Do you know?
Or to this are you blind?


To see the sweet
Taste of sugar
Or sour taste of lime.


Who are they?
Can they see?
The freedom I seek


Is it I?
Or is it them
Or their thoughts that imprison me.

I would tell you
Who I am,
Just open your ear.


Freedom of rejection,
In which I
No longer fear.


To be let free,
To the wind
Is what I waited to see.


To see the time
That come,
To where I’m
Finally free.

The author's comments:

Freedom, in present day times, isn't just the enslavery of one by another. In these tragic times, we enslave ourselves; to merely attempt to avoid the criticism of their peers. We, as young adults, must stop this and be able to show who we are. SoI challege you with this question, Who Are You?
