Might Have Been

What is it that I want
from this life they say is mine?
When all my life, I've only seen
everything that others want of me

What do I need to do, to be
beyond their preplanned expectations
of what I ought to want to be?

We long for a freedom
that seems illusive
yet freedom is here
in each and every moment
in each and every choice we make

to live
or else we die
never knowing
what we might have been
