Though not my most favorite of Dickinson's poems, it has quite an impactful
thought so many of us are concerned with. She eloquently places the thought
of being nothing on one of Western Society's biggest emblem of importance.
Also, Karl from Azerbaijan, you missed the meaning entirely. This poem is
about how important everyone thinks they are, but the truth is virtually no
one will notice you are gone. Sure some family members will mourn you, but
you, like countless others, will end up as just another tombstone no one
comes to visit, slowly wearing out your name until it is entirely

I thought this poem was very deep. It shows how little we as individuals
are noticed, though, to a very few, we are the whole world. It shows how
we are all forgotten at some point, and we have to hold on to what we have.
I enjoyed it very much, and I think it was one of her best poems.

Having busy lives we do not notice that we are individuals, that we are
unique... Sometimes life scene makes us actors and allows us to forget
ourselves... We all are piligrims in one way or another, piligrims who
sometimes have to stand alone in the way of life, who sometimes need to
grow sharp prickles, and not be remembered. Uniqueness of the person is not
always noticed and valued: others, like the butterfly and the bee, would
use him or her, while others, as free as the piligrim ( the wind and the
bird)would love "the rose" and miss it pushing up the daisies... Only a
free soul can understand another free soul...
Here I see a simile: a person is as beautiful as a rose, as strong as
rose`s prickles, as lonely as a piligrim and as free as a wind or a bird;
therefore she/he is unique.

This is probably the worst poem ever. It was so boring. I really dont
know what you people were thinking when you read this. Like one person said
"most people notice you when your dead" okay.... make something great in
your life and people will notice you. When you die your remembered. duh.
