I'm Nobody! Who are you? by Emily Dickinson

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you -- Nobody -- Too?
Then there's a pair of us!

Don't tell! they'd advertise -- you know!
How dreary -- to be -- Somebody!
How public -- like a Frog --To tell one's name -- the livelong June --To an admiring Bog!
In America we think so much about becoming somebody, striking it rich, being famous...
Would that really make us happy...
If fame and fortune were the keys to happiness, why do so many rich actors end their lives?

Great thought, far too many people have their priorities way out of whack.  Why does anyone feel they need billions of dollars?  Who really needs a billion?  Haven't these people ever heard that the root of all evil is the love of money?
