    dotsTo be Knowndots

    Why do we look for approval
    power is always sought for
    yet a little is never enough
    to have more more more
    that is the ultimate goal
    but why cant we be fine
    the way we naturally are
    in the end i want to be remembered
    if by many or just one person
    for one to be remembered
    to be known
    that is my goal
    if i died would you remember me
    would the people i remember
    think about and remember me
    a lot of things have cost me
    money, time, patients, and friends
    but have i done enough
    loved enough
    cared enough
    have i accomplished anything at all
    the last time i fall
    and stay from rising up
    will i be remembered
    for now i realize
    i dont want to be famous
    popularity doesnt define
    i have opened up my eyes
    i do wish to be remembered
    but only by one other
    by that one i want to be known.

      we all have that longing to leave a lasting impression, a legacy. we don't want to be forgotten. the struggle with this desire and the knowledge that glamour isn't everything and fame can be lonely, it is a hard battle to fight. but sometimes, even though not remembered by name, someone is behind ther biggest of people. someone had to teach lincoln to be honest before he got his nickname. who told george washington carver about the value of truth before he cut down the cherry tree? we may not be known by name, but the seeds we plant in others is often noted in history...

      Seems to be a conflict with your alter-ego.

    I agree with your opinion about fame and remembrance. But why do you bother yourself with that?

    I would say remember one thing - Life is not about remembering or about being remembered, its about living and creating what could be worth remembering ever after.
