I Am Not a Tragedy

Wed, 11/04/2015 - 19:52 -- EvetteW

I am not a tragic hero

Or any hero at all

I am Nobody.

An extra in a movie

A non-player character with no dialogue.

I want to tell you a tragedy

That I'm abandoned

Or orphaned

Or abused

Or neglected

Or victimized

Or discriminated against

But I am none of those things.

Are there other people who deserve this more?

Yes.

Do I deserve your attention?

No.

I'm not even real

Not even here

Not even important

But maybe.... I can be?

I'm here.

I'm trying.

Perhaps, some day, I'll be more

Than just a blank face in a crowd.

This poem is about: 
Me
