Oppressed by Freedom

I was thinking about how we strive for peace and justice
how we struggle through our striving
with gritty enjoyment
with grimly grinning determination

I would be happier under an oppressive regime
because then I would have
something to push against
ideals to strive for
I would be able to live
fully and wonderfully
like an animal

Though I am one,
I cannot instigate that instinctive, impulsively spontaneous
part of me
because I am a Creature of Society
