If a pebble is thrown into the water but doesn't make a ripple, is it there to begin with?

I exist
I am a person
Walk, breathe, eat, feel
I have personality

But do I?

How do I know?
I know I exist

But do you?

I know I am here,
But. If. When.
If no one acknowledges this
Who I am

Do I even exist
at all?
How do I know?

I am here

If there is no
around me
