What Will I Do?


What will I do?

Will I answer duty's call?

Will I cure a disease?

Will I build my own hall?

Will I make fire cease?

Will I lead a nation?

Will I explore space?

Will I destroy stagnation?

Will I win a race?

Will I wonder why?

Why should do these things?

Why should my mind be stuck on sync?

Sync to the ideals of society, my parents, and more that is not I.

I believe my mind isn't a whore! Is it?

It is but a door wide open.

Open too wide for it's own good?

Good? No one knows what it is.

Is it what I choose?

I choose only to find out.
