Verify ID [Free Verse Poem]

Updated: Mar 23, 2020


Never have I ever needed so badly to be told that I am not invisible

Needing not for validation of my work

but verification that the work being done is not

for Nothing


Someone to remind me that there is an active brain

a beating heart

a soul that exists that can't be broken down

Selfishness, forcing selflessness into oblivion


Every now and then, I need a reminder that I am more

than what is perceived

More than what internal fights believe


Acknowledgment that in my absence

my presence once had meaning

Assurance that someone will remember me

and verify that at some point in time,

I was seen
