Unforgettably Forgettable


Unforgettably forgettable 

You never paid attention to her, not even if it was critical 

The society would see her, but she would still feel invisible

You'd hear her name, and intimation owls go, "who?" 

Not known, not shown... she's a nobody to you

She feared to speak, because who would listen?

If only they would look they would see that she's gifted

The glisten in her eyes, like the shiniest diamond in the rough

Only if someone would give her a chance, just to speak her thoughts

She could have the cure for cancer, medicine for AIDS

But who would know, the so called, "nobodies" these days.

Not worthy of a glance, not worthy of a "hey" 

These are the people that could help save

The world, man kind, and our future generation

But all yall care about is trends in this nation

If it's not about sneakers, girls, rap, and gold chains

Your words aren't needed in this world of fame

World of fame or world of shame

It doesn't matter because these nobodies will never be heard again

In this world I don't need to be heard 

Actions, will always speak louder than words

Why would I ever want to be so liberal when I rather be

Unforgettably Forgettable
