Poem: Face in the Crowd

Hello, everyone.

This is a poem I wrote a little while ago and took a long time to post it, but here it is.

Just a note, the words are kind of a mix of a rhyming poem and a freeverse. To be honest, it’s written more like song lyrics than a poem.

But anyway, that’s all.

Hope you enjoy! 🙂

I’m just a face in the crowd

I always will be

just a face in the crowd

no one really knows me

~

just a face in the crowd

just a face in the crowd

~

I see a guy

saying hi to his friends

I see a guy

living life with no dead ends.

~

I see someone I recognize

I wave and they peer at me

and say “Do I know you?”

Then they turn away and forget about me

~

just a face in the crowd

just a face in the crowd

~

I work hard to do something worthwhile

I strive to do something that might matter

But as I work it crumbles before my eyes

just like a broken ladder.

And I know I know I’ll never make an impact.

just a face in the crowd

just a face in the crowd

I’m just a face in the crowd

I always will be

just a face in the crowd

no one really knows me

~

just a face in the crowd

just a face in the crowd

~

Do people understand

that nobodies have hearts to?

Does anyone know

that they can hurt to?

~

And if anyone knows

do they really care?

~

Does anyone care?

That I’m more than a face in the crowd?

Does anyone care?

That I’m hurt even though I’m not loud

~

just a face in the crowd

just a face in the crowd

~

I’m just a face in the crowd

I always will be

just a face in the crowd

no one really knows me

~

just a face in the crowd

just a face in the crowd

~

maybe out there

there’s someone who cares

maybe out there

there’s someone who would befriend me, if he dares

~

maybe out there

there’s someone who would look at the face in the crowd

the face in the crowd

the face in the crowd

~

maybe out there

there’s someone who thought

a face in the crowd

really mattered.
