Would you care? If I slid a blade across my skin, Would you care then? What if I jumped off a cliff and drowned, Would you wear a frown? Is it sad that sometimes, I want to be terribly injured to see if you care? Thinking while talking with friends on a balcony, wondering if I get pushed off accidentally, what would you feel? Think? Would there be fear in your eyes? Would you run down the stairs to see if I was alive? Would you panic and wonder what the world is going to be like without me? Or would you feel... nothing? Would you not even care? You cant help me, theres nothing you can do cause im already broken through and through just leave me alone and ill disappear no one will notice im not here ill be a shadow on the wall and none of you will even know at all im breaking piece by piece my end is nearly here Would you even care if I disappeared? © UNCLE SAM #theunspoken U.$ records

This poem makes me sad. I would hope the person in this poem who cares so much whether this certain person even would miss if he or she was gone, would love themself more than this. That they would be able to say after some tears, well if you don't care, someone else will because i am worth it. I am not "just a shadow on the wall". Thought provoking poem. Thanks for making me use my imagination.
