You may never see your name in lights.
Or listed on Wikipedia.
And maybe I won’t either.
In a world of so called endless ‘possibility’,
The ‘possibility’ of celebrity is always present
But not always probable.
Nor is it a useful benchmark
For the value we bring to the world.
Going viral or getting famous
May be easier today on social media
But counting likes can be an insidious distraction
From doing work that is truly valuable
And not just popular.
