Haiku?

I've always been fascinated by the power of Haiku in it's simplicity. In reading about Haiku I found that it is way more complicated than your highschool english lit teacher could ever have conveyed. There are so many rules I was astounded. The paper I was reading stated that there are so many that some of them are in direct coflict with each other. So part of the art is in deciding which rules to follow. I decided to try my hand at it, with a very basic 5-7-5 formula and very few rules. Below is my attempt. Be gentle in your critique I have a fragile ego. Ok that's not really true, bring it on. I want to hear what you really think. Even if you hate it. Special kudos to anyone that can figure out where I found my inspiration for this peom.

Beast says
to get out.
But the way out
Is the way.
Though not
The way in.
