I Am Society - Poem by Sierra Staten

When is it too soon to love somebody?
When you're sure you love them,
How can society tell you its too soon?
How can society control your actions?
We are society.
I am society.
And I say, it's not too soon.
I do love you, and whether or not the rest of the world agrees,
I'll never know.
I don't intend to find out.
All I know is that I love you;
You, your past, and your future.
You, as a whole.
Only you.

    A brilliant determination. I love it.
    Beside society is a vague word and is constantly at discord with itself.
    Well written.curt but pointed.
