Poem entitled "My Existence"

Here I stand,
Reading
Scribbling on a scratch of paper
I live here in this house
Alone, but not forgotten.
I stand upon the mountaintops yelling out my name
Where has he gone?
What has he done?
I live here in this house
Together, forever.

Here I stand,
Reminiscing
Upon the times of youth
The struggle, the tears, that incident when I was a kid.
My jaw left hurting
My eyes welled with pain.
My life has seen many a painful moment in return.
However, this moment, this time in space
An endless void of opportunities would never change my mind
That moment in the sun, where I prayed.
The sun hitting my eyes, making them close slightly
God was in that sun, in that moment.
Smiling upon my head.
Unsure of the moment, I walked away.

Now, today, at this very timeless moment,
I think.
Thinking of the times that were so bad
Thinking of the wonderful times I could have had.
Yet, appreciation is the only regret that comes to mind
Appreciation of the hard times
The struggle to survive
The moment when I left home, while being all alone
The time when I felt uneasy and lost my faith
My Faith in life
My Faith in love
My Faith in God.

Yes, I have been abandoned, reborn, and abandoned again
The emotions swell, receed, burn, and disappear.
Yet, I will not change that experience for a moment.
It is mine.
It completes me.
It tells me who I am.
The essence of a human,
Undone
Unfinished
A few more chapters to be read.

I live here on this earth.
This planet
This wonderous place
Of Love
Of Hate
Of Peace
and War
My existence is all I have
My existence is my only choice
My existence is the only truth.

So, here I stand.
Reminiscing
On my odd form of existence.
I stand happily in the sun
Of no meaning
No answers
With only a life to live
With a heart full of love and everything to give.
