Just an FYI - one of my favorite Emily Dickinson poems is about being a nobody:

I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there ’s a pair of us—don’t tell!
They ’d banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

Emily Dickinson (1830–86). Complete Poems. 1924.
