I want to be famous

I want to be on TV
I want to be in the magazines
I want to be the person of the year
I want Playboy cover
I want Nobel prize
I want medals, honors, everything

I want to play the big movies
I want to play the big leagues
I want to seat the big tables
I want to join the big parties
I want to buddy celebrities

I want to be seen
I want to be heard
I want to be loved
I want the world to know me
I want all the good things for me

Then the fool asked

Who last year the Nobel prize of Economy was?

Maybe this year?

Who this year Pulitzer prize winner is?

Who this year the artist who sold most concerts is?

Who the president of the biggest bank in the world is?

Who last month on the cover of playboy was?

Who the first Time person of the year was?

Who the most popular woman in the world is?


Who the president of China is?

The president of Lithuania?


Now…what’s the name of the teacher who influenced you the most at school?

What the name of the people who gave you best life advise?

What the name of the people who were there for you when you down, broken?

… Madness

You know Not the name of Nobel winners

You know Not the names of so many famous people

You know not the names of so high achievers

You wanna become one of them

A good person to family and neighbours

Is remembered long after

Everything Else is Vanity
Perhaps illusions
