I am nothing

I am nothing.
Even if I don’t move,
the world will still shift,
the wind will still blow,
time will still roll.

I am but a single feather,
unable to fly on its own,
fated to fall slowly
towards the ground.

I am but a single piece,
neither good nor evil,
neither a pawn nor a king.

I am but a word in the pages of history,
a single memory in the minds of people,
predestined to quietly vanish
in the hands of time…

I am but a simple being,
unique yet mundane,
bound to disappear
after everything is lost.

I am but a simple poet,
a slave to words,
holding on to them
as if they were the wings that allow me to fly.

I am but human,
flawed, imperfect.
I am nothing,
and to nothing I will return..

    Tells the truth that we face everyday, we are nothing to many, just a face, just a memory that is gonna fade away with time.
