Example Poem

This poem addresses the problem of being nobody. The solution is that it actually is better to be obscure.

I'm Nobody
by Emily Dickinson

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!
