Nobody

I’ve always been Nobody,
gratefully.

How dreary to think
I came close
just one time
to being
Somebody.

I don’t need riches
and I don’t need fame
but once it would be nice
to live without blame.

I’ll always be Nobody,
thankfully.

How hopeful you were
that I just might
turn out to be
the scapegoat
you needed.

I don’t want you
and I don’t want that life
but still the thought
of a day without strife.

I am Nobody,
hopefully.
