Still Here - Poem by Michael J. Burt

i'm still here
even though i left an hour ago
even though i no longer live here
even though my presence is not acknowledged
i'm still here
although i am not wanted nor cared for
i'm still here
if you want me here or not
like me here or not
see me here or not
colorless is my mind
but not my skin, you see me here
standing here, being here
watching you.
i'm still here
right here, here i am
