Poem: “A Non-Existent Existence” by Teresa Edmond

The following is a poem I’ve written in my high school senior year creative writing class. It appears in my poetry book How Fate’s Confusion Connects.

A Non-Existent Existence
No family, no name, no face.
The concept is so unreal.
A non-existent existence.
History changed; with that I must deal.

The concept is so unreal.
Those I cherish are now strangers.
History changed; with that I must deal.
Without me, everyone else is in danger.
Those I cherish are now strangers.

I wasn’t around to help the helpless.
Without me, everyone else is in danger.
Now I must live to fix this mess.
I wasn’t around to help the helpless.

But nothing changes. I’m alive and useless.
Now I must live to fix this mess.
I wish this wish of mine didn’t exist.
