Who am I ?

To be is not who I want to be
It is instead expected of me to be
Is not what I want to be?
For I want to be what I cannot be
Without the disappointment of what is expected of me
For I have to be what is not me
When I always have to be what society expected of me to be
Instead of whom I truly want to be

I am to be who I want to be
Despite what society expects me to be
Instead of being me
For now I shall be
What I have to be
