Exist: A Command

Who implied that anything needed to be done
Was wrongful, unless their name was death
Guidance is unnecessary if existing exists
Statements, empty aphorisms, metaphors
Serve to aggrandize themselves
While furthering no instinct to be
For not to be is an extreme option
A response to feeling that the procedure
Of becoming was too much
An intact sensation only when being
Is rough, without rest, painful
And yet, here lies one 
Who continues to be here
Defying transcription
To full mind
Emptying out
Twelve hours after the most recent meal
Unwilling to use the word last
To make totality out of a molehill
