You don’t know me

You’ve never seen me

I’m not on the front of any magazine cover

Never been on a TV show

No expensive advertisement has shown me

I haven’t won any big competitions

No audience has laughed at my jokes

I haven’t been photographed with any trophies

Books are not written about me

You don’t know what I have for breakfast

You don’t know when I go to the gym –

What I pray for at night

The highs and lows in those moments of silence

You don’t know my plans

My dreams

My doubts

My insecurities

You don’t know how loud the voice inside of me is

You don’t know me

But you will.

    This is intriguing. Have any of you created a year-long (life-long) project, and documented your efforts?

        I think it’s that feeling that everyone’s anonymous in the world they exist in or their own environment until a certain point where, in my opinion, they feel secure enough to know what it is they want to be known for. I think everyone can relate to that feeling in some way.
