Great Quote by Shel Silverstein!

Here’s a superb quote I found if you’re ever feeling a teensy bit sorry for yourself due to depression, illness, circumstance, etc.

“Nobody loves me, nobody cares,
Nobody picks me peaches and pears.
Nobody offers me candy and Cokes,
Nobody listens and laughs at me jokes.
Nobody helps when I get into a fight,
Nobody does all my homework at night.
Nobody misses me,
Nobody cries,
Nobody thinks I’m a wonderful guy.
So, if you ask me who’s my best friend, in a whiz,
I’ll stand up and tell you NOBODY is!
But yesterday night I got quite a scare
I woke up and Nobody just WASN’T there!
I called out and reached for Nobody’s hand,
In the darkness where Nobody usually stands,
Then I poked through the house, in each cranny and nook,
But I found SOMEBODY each place that I looked.
I seached till I’m tired, and now with the dawn,
There’s no doubt about it-
NOBODY’S GONE!!”

  1. Haha, that is genius! Everyone’s there!

    It is uncanny how he describes the loneliness one can feel going thru a depression, clouding and muting everything and everyone who cares.

    Seriously, thank you for sharing. It was a great read.

  2. There was no one like Shel, I have his book, “Where The Sidewalk Ends” Cat in the hat for the hipsters. The brain behind Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show! Thanks Libby
