To Exist


Hyn Edwit is a university student who writes poems and stories reflecting his inner thoughts.


Gray tainted walls

Surround my vision, I saw

a red stamp through a transparent envelope

"Rejected", the paper screams

Its cries screeching and overwhelming.

Does life exist

As I resist

Against countless of struggles?

Lush greens

Embrace a marble slate. Cold

breeze carrying my cries overwhelmed

by the roars of the rain

Does death persist

As I relish

the rarest of happiness?

Both entities entitled

my story to be untitled

A blank paper full of blotches

adorning a continuing streak of ink


Fragmented shards

fill my being,

Asymmetric features

frame my humanity,

Views and thoughts

have gone relentless

to this one scorching claim:

This is who I am

however imperfect

I will always

identify myself

a Kalon


And together we stare

beyond the darkness

meeting the whimsical breeze

seeping through

our very core

The creeping cold, we embrace

replaced by contentment

basked by the ever

growing light

graciously reflected in

our eyes

Good day, Ruby! Thank you very much for your kind words and yes, I do agree that no matter what, we will always find a way to see the beauty in living even through simple objects or common but heartfelt emotions.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on December 20, 2020:

Very beautiful, your words open avenues of life lived and remembered, sometimes fondly, sometimes with regret, but always thankful that we sometimes see beauty in the strangest objects.
