I Desire to Exist

I shout to the crowd
“I am here!”

But my voice is just 
filtered out noise

I walk the wrong way
against the flow
hoping to be touched
to be seen

But I am like
dust in the wind
floating and unseen

I am exploding with wisdom

But am told I must wait
wait to be invited
to share my secrets
and reveal your truths

Deep within me
is the desire to exist
and I finally know
that desire is Me
