A NOBODY

A NOBODY*


You called yourself a Nobody 
And you were so sincere 
But have to know my friend
That to me you are so dear

Yourself you see as worthless
An insignificant part of society
But you don’t recognize though
That you, too, are part of reality

All things around you that take place
Each work and every single thing
Nothing would ever have happened 
If you were not here it to bring

You are as important as any
Of those so called great men
They really would be nothing
If didn’t help them now and then

For once stand up with pride
Let them know who you really are
You are the work of our Creator
Destined to do better things by far!

*A friend of mine thinks that is a NOBODY! With this declaration I do not agree at all, for I believe that, that person is a wonderful human being worthy of my respect and support, for that reason I wrote this little poem to honor that person! I only hope the person in question reads this little tribute of mine!

    This is sooo well written and sooo very true. Believe me, at one time I myself felt unimportant and inferior but eventually realized I have something to offer like everyone else. I have never looked back! A beautiful write my good and honourable friend, Demetrios!

    Jack, my friend, I think all of us had moments like that for different reasons. The important think is to overcome this erroneous feeling and stand tall for we are all important for society and, most of all, for our Lord! Thank you so much my esteemed friend!

    This is a highly respectful and glorious write dedicated to your friend here Demetrios! And I agree with you completely no one is a nobody, no matter his/her feelings, he/she is not a nobody! Things might not be working in his/her favor but he/she is still very important part of life! The contributions to others is always astounding even if he/she doesn't know about it! I really enjoyed reading this awesome poem this morning! What a lovely piece, Great Work!!
