I think she was trying to give the message that being famous looks great
and your rich it isn't as great as it looks. I think this because you would
always be in the spotlight and you wouldn't have privacy. I think that was
a great message to put through a poem.

i think that sometimes she feels sad and she needs a friend to help her
along the way.

I think Emily was trying to say that being famous is not what you think it
is and isn't the most important thing in life! I also think she is
proclaiming her proudness of being a nobody.

I think that she thinks that no one talks to her so she thinks that no one
ever sees her or talks to her or anything

i agree with every one about this poem, i think that Emily was a very keep
things to yourself kind of person who just tried to be herself other than a
fraud. i would rather be myself then be someone everyone else wants me to
be. This is the best poem that i have ever read i think because i can
relate it to myself because to be myself is more interesting and unique.

I think that everybody is a nobody really. Even if they are the richest
person, a movie star, or work at McDonald's, they are all the same . We
should be who we are because we're all the same, and we can't change that.
