My Existence

Exist, persist, resist, insist,

Why assume I seek your favor?

Your opinions, a fleeting flavor,

In a dystopia of wine, you persist,

Reality calls, a beauty untold,

Beyond the vineyards, where pleasures unfold,

 

Existence spans beyond the individual,

Yet, nothing thrives in solitude, so pivotal,

Opinions, rumors, a leeching tide,

Shall I be humble, in your dystopian guide?

Live in shame, guilt, sympathy’s plea,

Or shield my essence, my identity?

 

Exist, but not raised in your construct,

Exist, unnoticed, a whispered rhyme,

Exist, yet in solitude, I stand,

Exist, but the desire fades like sand.

In the echo of false rumors, anxiety takes its toll,

But, a student’s heart trembles, as teachers’ tales unroll
