Robin's Realm


A Nobody


Who am I

Am I one of them

One they call a Nobody


What is a Nobody

It is a lost soul

Is it one who has

Not made it in life?


To really contemplate that word


To really search within my

Heart and soul


I ask

Mirror Mirror

On the wall

What do you see


I wait patiently

My eyes burning intently

For you see

It is me looking back


I hear a voice

A voice that speaks

You are what you are

Let them not judge you

For I am the judge of all


To reach my dreams and desires

That is my wish

For when I do

He and all the rest can say

I knew her when she was a



What he and all the rest

Including my self

Did not realize all that time


I truly was someone

A true person

A loving caring woman

One who had a large heart

One who had it all

As the waves of life

Crashed all around

It was all just lost


As each new day begins

I can look in the mirror

I do not see a Nobody

I see me


A me who is worth it all

Worth all that life has to offer

A woman who should never settle

A woman who is worth

All her weight in gold


Look out world

Here she is

That one that has said

Sorry you missed it all

You were looking and searching

All that time

So sad it is

It was right here in front of you

All the time


My wings are in full flight

Ready and waiting

Combusting into full energy

To have it all
