I'm nothing to the world
Meaningless and worthless
Just another human being
With nothing special at all

A face in the crowd
Nobody notices
Another stanger
People won't remember

Anonymous I am
That won't change
Quickly forgotten I'll be
That's my sad destiny
Just another sad poem...

We all feel this way sometimes; and I like how you wrote it.

And I recently realized we won't be remembered for our accomplishments most likely... but how we treated those around us. So I try to care how I'd want others to care for me.

P.S. truly I can walk into a party or in the room with two other people and not get noticed for awhile; and I was at an all day event and wasn't noticed by a friend for the first 6 hours. It happens. But instead of feeling negative about it... I just say I'm training my ninja skills. :)

I'd say it's nice to be invisible sometimes. It gives us more freedom. But sometimes it hurts to be ignored...

We are all faces in the crowd, but it is ourselves who stand out, we are all individuals... although I love to be anonymous! ^^

unfortunately, a familiar feeling for many people, although I doubt many people could describe it with such accuracy or so deeply meaningful.

Sad but true, I guess. But thanks anyway :)

:hug: Such a familiar feeling... But there's always people that will remember and that's what's important. :meow:

It is, isn't it? And you're right, there's always someone who will remember. Quality over quantity, right?

It's kinda realistic, isn't it? And life is often very sad.
But thanks.

it's bad to feel this way but know that I don't see you as any of those things.

U know what friend? I bet everyone who's not famous or rich or have a lot of friends because they're snot rags is just another human being. I'm proud to be just another stranger. Because I can say what I want and do what I want and if people think I'm a dumbass for it then I don't give a shit because I'm just another stranger and so are they, friend. Be proud to be another face. Another stranger... And wow! This is really good! My point still stands... and also There are probably a lot of people who think other wise! Like me and everyone who has told you so, friend!

I sometimes feel like nobody knows who I am and that I serve no purpose in this world, but then my friend reminds me that I'm one who made her laugh when her cat dies and that I'm the one who won a arm wrestling match against one of the stuck up popular guys and that I'm the one who fit sixteen grapes in their mouth. And then I be happy and watch cartoons, friend!

Think of all the wonderful things that you've done. Think of what would happen if you hadn't had done those things. Think of all the people you made smile. Don't think of the people who think that you just take up space in this world. Don't think of how small you are. Think of how big you could be, friend,

Thanks. This poem was meant to be sad but realistic. But your perspective is very valid. Life has its ups and down and we have to live with that, right? Let's both do our best to keep going :hug:
