I'M Nobody! Who Are You?

I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us -- don't tell!
They'd banish -- you know!

How dreary to be somebody!
How public like a frog
To tell one's name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

by Emily Dickinson

i love this poem because i am nobody silent invisible unnoticeable / that is factual or so i thought/i know not/
how would one really know.. why would i be that careless //
it was in relation to my life not another.. // lunchables like really //
I remember this poem from my childhood, many years ago. Sometimes, it seemed like just a silly little poem. Other times, it was a serious statement of how I felt at a particular time. All these years later, it's become a very pleasant memory.
I regret making this poem
