yet another ought to

they keep saying you ought to
or else they warn you not to

and you try to range a little freer
and this is what you are brought to

with one foot mired in the dirt
(you can't escape what you're taught to)

another stumbling to find a path:
self-actualization, there's a lot to

it than that. these are all I have:
here's a what-for and a now-what-to.

let us ask them til our minds unfold.
as living people we have got to.
