a nothing

if i was eliminated,
    snuffed out,
    wiped away clean.
nothing would be different,
    it all would be the same.

a george bailey i'm not,
    with a wonderful life.
i couldn't even say
    my life was filled with strife.

i'm a nothing
    with a nothing, pitiful course,
    that no one will ever know.

and the marks that i have made
    i don't even think will show.
