We all want to be noticed
Whether we like to admit it or not,
but we humans constantly need the comfort
of reminding ourselves that we exist.
That's why we fall in love,
why we write sonnets and songs,
why we paint and draw,
why we explore and create,
why we are constantly trying to find ways to save lives
and live longer.
We are afraid of being forgotten
and losing our existence even after death.
we need to be noticed and remembered.
And if a day goes by without someone praising us
or asking how we are, we feel unloved
and think of ourselves to be simply nothing.
We are and we will always be in need of a reminder
that we exist at this very moment
and that we will always be remembered.
So we leave fossils of our existences behind.
