A society's

ideals should not be forced on you.

Make your own choices.

Thanks for the critique. As for it getting better, I'm still trying, and it fights back. I personally prefer poems that give a message in a round-abound way, but this haiku just tells me not to change it.

I cannot agree with you more. Society is one of those things that just slaps you in the face when you aren't expecting it. However, you still shouldn't let it boss you around, be yourself, not society. Great word choice, great message...could it get any better?
