We Are The Nameless Ones

We Are The Nameless Ones

A Poem by SinisterPotatoe
"

Sometimes all people want is to be noticed

"

We are the nameless ones, who no one knows

Forgotten ones, who sold our souls

With shallow hearts and distant goals

Knowing nothing, friends or foes

 

We are the lonely ones that are dead inside

So silent, no one knows whether we live or died

But to those who hate us, at least we tried

We search for purpose with our arms open wide

 

We are the outcasts, and the losers

We’re not the pickers, not the choosers

We all have scars, and we have bruises

We live this life because that’s just the way it goes

 

We fight our anxiety, to make us stronger

So we can live happily a little longer

We’re not wanted, but we’re not monsters

At the end of the day, even a loner needs company

 

We are the unwanted with no friends

Who’s plans fail to no end

There are no words that we can send

Because nobody will hear them

 

We sit silent in the corners

Between us and the other students there are borders

We don’t fit in with the latter or the former

There is no place for us, we are alone

 

As I sit silent in the school halls

I feel I can see it all

And to be honest I’m appalled

To see that I am worth less than the others

 

And I watch the students play

As they’re living out their day

But sitting alone by my locker I will stay

Because I’ve been forgotten

Author's Note

SinisterPotatoe
This is pretty much how I felt in middle school and high school. I still feel this way. And I know I'm not the only one.


I very seldom reply to reviews, but I promise I read EVERY single one. I look forward to my next review, because it helps me learn. Even if it's just one word, I promise, I will be ecstatic to have the chance to hear what you have to say. Whenever you write something about my poems, or the themes of my poems, or criticize me it is not in vain. I will listen, learn and be thankful.

Fantastic poem! I use the adjective "fantastic" a lot, don't I? Regardless, it was great. I really liked the rhyme scheme (AAAA BBBB CCCA DDDE FFFF GGGA HHHI JJJK). The third stanza when the A came back around, that was powerful. I really like the negative neutrality that this gives. It definitely shows how somebody in this position feels them as alone, unaffiliated, yet in a way that isn't like impartiality, but it has a negative connotation. 95/100 because a few lines seemed to have the rhyme scheme controlling it. Rhyme schemes should almost be coincidental, in my opinion. Wording should be just as natural as regular speech. Great poem!

Big hugs. Things get better even though I know right now it doesn't feel that way. Writing about your pain is cathartic & cleansing. Thank you for sharing.

You have aptly described what it feels like to be lonely. It hurts a lot and all the minute details have been perfectly written. I can relate to this and I love the title. This was truly well written.
