I Am Present

I am neither sacrilege nor a privilege

I may not be a competent or excellent

But I am present.


My happiness is me

Not you

Not only because you may be temporary

But also because you want me to be

What I am not.

I cannot be happy when I change

Merely to satisfy your selfishness

Nor can I feel content

When you criticize me for not thinking

your thoughts for not seeing

like you. You call me a rebel

yet for each time I have rejected

your beliefs you have rebelled against mine.

I do not try to mold your mind

I know you are trying hard enough to be just you

And I cannot allow you to tell me what to be.

For I am concentrating on being me.


You said I was transparent

And easily forgotten

But why then did you try  to use my lifetime

to prove to yourself what you are?
