Existence


As a lonely fragment
I exist
As an entity of unknown origin
I exist
As a nameless face
I exist

I exist and in the beginning it was enough
For all I wanted was here and now
All I ever wished
All I ever desired
All and everything began and ended here and now
And for a moment that was enough

Only as a fragment
I existed
As a presence of unknown identity
I existed
As an shameless shell
I existed

I existed but in the end it wasn’t enough
For the purpose that I desired was never found
All I wished to be
All I wanted to be
All ended in unanswered doubts and thoughts
And now for me to believe in a higher power
A holy existence that commands my meaning and purpose
For me that was and will always be to deny my own existence

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
