I'm sick
Sick of people
Who worry about me
I don't want them to care
About me
Because I want to be forgotten
Forgotten should I be
I want no one to remember me
When I die
No one should know who I am
Because they would grieve
And I am sick of grief
I don't want to be loved
I don't want to be nice
I just want to be
Myself
It's always expected of me to be nice and polite and calm, but why can't I be me?

Okay. What's wrong, because no one should ever feel this way, like. you should be glad people care about you, and love you

If people expect you to not be yourself, dump them, you don't need that kind of crap. Great poem, I like the shape of it, the emotion of it, it's wonderful.

Because society pressures every one to protect the "weak", quote on quote, though this completely goes against the natural order of life. Humanity's understanding is a blessing and a curse, since we ignore our biggest natural instinct, to survive. Our understanding allows to ask question, to question life its self.

There was a little boy that thought that he was all alone,
he snacked on momentary bliss but he was far from home,
he listed the persistent risk of capturing a heart,
from passers-by.

The longing for forgetting was a prime and central need,
to ride away from social ties on his most trusty steed,
the boy or maybe girl could disappear from public life,
and drift away...

But perhaps I need to break the lie of momentary bliss,
the longing love of listless ones that's far too long to list!
and finally find we be free from forming useless ties,
and come to see that useful leads don't need run our lives,
as time goes by.

And maybe we will both finally find the ones we need be,
and share that life with waiting ones who help us both be free.

I like your poem [It's something that's highly relatable], it's very well written and it has a lot of emotion.
You can be you!
