Who cares if I am forgotten when I am gone, for if someone was around to care, I would be remembered.

The forgotten

We are the forgotten

The people no one will remember

The ones they will forget

Not exceptional just ordinary

We are the majority

We will be remembered as a whole

Not as pieces of the bigger picture

We leave nothing behind

We didn't change the world

Or make history

People don't look up to us

Or know our names

But did the remembered

Ever think it was better that way

Those you are remembered

Aren't people but rather

A picture drawn and painted

By what they did

Or for some, what they didn't

What they were

What they weren't

How they changed the world

For better, or for worst

People are remembered in black or white

Rarely in shades of grey

I am happy to be forgotten

I will not do what it takes to be remembered

I won't take the risk of being remembered

For what I wasn't

For if that is how I am remembered

Was I really ever as I am

I know that just because

I will be forgotten

Doesn't mean I wasn't here

Who cares if I am forgotten

When I am gone

Because if someone was around to care

I would be remembered
