To Be

To be, or not to be?
This isn't really a question
It is a statement of whether
You are, or you aren't
Whether you're willing to work for
What you want to become
Rather than letting yourself
Drift to whatever it is
Everyone else pushes you to be
To be
To being
Being someone you're proud of
Being
Being a person who has a life worth living
Being a good everything
Being a great someone
Being
Being comes with prices,
Consequences, and even
Rewards at grand times
Being comes with sacrifice,
Struggle,
And even aspiration at great times,
Being is not a question--
It is a destination,
It is living.
It is not even a debate,
It is.
To be is the only option.
