Society Is You and Me

Society is you and me.
Everyone’s a piece of they.
Very much of what we do
Ends up as words that others say.
No I exists except as we,
Though he and she are part of you;
Each pronoun’s only partly true,
Each life becomes another’s way.
No one alone can simply be.–Dimitri Shostakovich
