Forgettable

 

I’m tempted to change my whole mentality,

To make sure you’ll never be able to forget me,

‘Cause the Devil wishes to be remembered through evil,   

And it seems to me being good to folks is just forgettable.

I don't have a good description for this 'cept I'm tired of being forgotten or ignored.

I'm just talkin'. Like I always do. Just like I'll always be alright.

This piece really made me think. It seems as though people who do bad things are often remembered more than those who do good. But remember, Ricky, in the end nobody likes the bad guy. People who are true, kind and thoughtful are remembered, and are truly not forgettable. :heart:

I'm glad to hear you like this piece. :)

And I don't necessarily wish to be more mean or evil, but rather wish that people I love, be more........vocal. Or open when something is right or wrong. And I feel like I'm being ignored or forgotten at times. :shrug:

It's true that the bad things tend to be remembered more. I've had a lot of mean things said and done to me; I remember them, but they're just a jumble of words in my head. It's the nice things, the acts of kindness that I remember every detail of. Even if someone doesn't vocalize it, I'm sure they remember your acts of kindness. :)

You'll be surprised later on in life how many people remember the kindnesses you've done them. You think you're ignored, but you're not. The ugliness is the part people try to forget. The beauty is what worthwhile people hold on to.

I absolutely agree. I was just venting with this piece, really. I'm not gonna lie and say I don't feel that way at times 'cause I do, but I understand not everyone forgets or ignore that kind things they receive.

No, Ricky. It's because you are who you are that you are not ignored or forgotten. If people do forget the kind things you do, it's because their memories are feeble and small-minded, not because of anything you've done or said. :iconcuddleplz:
