Everybody's nobody

Everybody wants me to speak what they want to hear,
Nobody wants to hear me speak.

Everybody wants me to see their point of view,
Nobody wants to share my sights.

Everybody wants me to write what they think,
Nobody wants to read my mind.

Everybody wants me to cheer for their cause,
Nobody wants to be my comrade.

Everybody wants me to solve their problem,
Nobody wants to help me with mine.

Everybody wants me to live in their world,
Nobody wants to live with me.

Everybody wants me to run after them,
Nobody wants to wait for me.

Everybody wants me to understand,
Nobody wants to listen.

Everybody wants me,
Nobody cares.


  1. the story of my life!
    how do u do this?? how do you express the things that choke me cos i can't get them out in such a simple way?

  2. If I knew how I would've gladly told you!
    I do not have a clue :) It's just what I was feeling at the time. Actually I started writing out the days events, and then decided to chuck the verbose prose for another terse verse... and voila! How's life there? Hope u r doing fine.

  3. I feel your pain, your poem is my life.
