Pondering Significance

April 22, 2021
By Anonymous

Sometimes I wonder,

"Would the world really be bettter off

without me?"

My mind brings this up constantly and

I can't decide,

"Is it true?"

I don't know what I should do.

I know that,

if I happened to die tomorrow,

those I love would mourn me. Yet,

the world would just keep turning

as if I'd never existed at all.

Would my absence make any difference?

I guess, I never quite pondered

my own significance.

Is it true that, maybe,

I'm just so insignificant

that, my existence,

to the world,

matters not?

Now, isn't that food for thought?

Would my death change anything, or

would it be in vain?

Would it make the world a better place, or

would it just cause pain?

I need answers to these questions because

they're driving me insane.
