Remember Me MAG

March 11, 2010
By Anonymous

Do you remember me? I'm the girl
You knocked down in the hall.
You were in a rush, and I guess
I must have blended in with the wall.
Is that what happened? Or is it
You were moving just too fast
And all the things you're rushing by,
Do you know what you've gone past?
Do you remember me? I'm the girl
Who laughed, the girl who can do no wrong.
I'm the girl who can't do anything,
Who never will belong.
Or am I mistaken?
Was that role taken,
By all the girls told that they're “unique”?
Let's be honest, it's a synonym for “freak.”
At least, that's what we think
And the magazines claim –
So now, the truth, the revolution,
It's time to proclaim:
I screw up, and I'm messed up,
I see a shrink, and that's okay.
I don't fit the perfect picture
That we all try to portray.
Do you remember me? I'm leading
A revolution starting now.
If you remember me,
We'll change the world, I vow.
Will you remember me? Or more importantly,
Will you remember what I've said?
I may only be a fleeting star,
One day, I will grow cold.
But if you look up to the stars tonight
You'll see more than pinpricks of light
Wisdom shines and wisdom's released,
As you wish on a star that's deceased.
But it's okay, if you remember me,
Do you remember me? I'm here.
But one day when my light is gone,
Don't let me disappear.
Fading into walls, we bury ourselves
In the go-go-go rush, modern hurries.
Everyone needs to be told,
We share all the same worries.
Will they like me? Do I even
Matter to anyone? And will I
Live on to be happy or
Just go away after I die?
I hate this stress and this pain,
Depression, wonder if I'm sane.
I'm tired, and I only want to go to bed.
I've gotta do everything else instead.
I wonder if anyone else would agree
Or if no one will ever join me.
Are these everybody's thoughts,
Or am I the only one?
If you are like me, come and join me
The revolution's begun.
And we'll fight the modern world in sync,
And let free the secret thoughts we think.

"I feel infinite"

I wrote this poem, and one other article, "Released" and published them anonymously.  Those two made it into the print magazine (probably the only two from Loveland, Ohio).  Anyway, I don't know for sure why I made them anonymous, but if you would like to read any other things I wrote, well, this is my username thing.  My name is Kaitlyn Manley.  You don't have to read anything if you do not want to, but if you did, then there you have it. :) and have a happy new year!

PS I posted as "poet" before because I was not logged in.

:)  I suppose, unless I am extremely talented at sleep-walking and sleep-typing, most likely I am not you in disguise.  However... that is exactly what you-in-disguise would say, wouldn't it be? :D  Excuse my poor taste in humor, I think I got it from my dad.

I love this. Very relateable for many girls, myself included. Like a couple of comments ahead of me, me in disguise? :)

It actually started out as a free-verse sort of poem, but then when I became stuck, I turned it into a song, because... well, I guess it just came easier to me that way!

Yes, "writer" is a word. Kepp, however, is not. ;-)

I am you... in disguise.

Don't tell the others, or they might get jealous. ;)

Recording?  Probably never.  :/  I picked out a few chords, and can sing it, but fail at doing both at once.  Unfortunately, I love writing songs, but have no future singing or playing guitar.  It is more just for fun.  Who knows, maybe someone else can sing something I write one day!

Woah..this sounds so much like me I could have wrote it myself. I love your beginning, and how the whole thing flowed. (: You're good, and you're not alone.
