ARE YOU NOBODY TOO?
I’m Nobody! Who are you?
by Emily Dickenson
I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there’s a pair of us — don’t tell!
They’d banish us, you know.
How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
I Came across this little poem by Emily Dickenson when I was in high school. I kind of like it at that time because it speaks of my heart. I was always the smallest in class, this made me develop some inferiority complex. After so many years, it came to my mind again when I woke up one morning. I like to add a little thought of my own.
I am nobody so Emily wrote
Am I really nobody? I thought
I am just like anybody, I cried
No more no less, I don’t have to try.
I was a boy so a boy I was.
Accepting my fate my weakness my lot
Now I am a man so a man am I
Just like any other man so they say I am
No more no less no matter how hard I try.
