I want to be a free spirit.
I want to be a punk.
I want people to call me a greaser.
I want to know what I want.

I want to believe what people tell me.
I want to be right. Always.
I want to know more than everyone else. I want them to know it, too.
I want to know what I want.

I want society's preference to matter less than jellyfish.
I want to be self-sefficient so I don't have to ask your help.
I want you to never make that 'you need me' expression again.
I want you to give me what I want.
Once I know what that is.

This is really fantastic and it seems like the subject matter is very personal to you, which I like. I'm new here, would you check out my first poem?
