invisible

like an empty shelf with no books
dirty laundry in a closet and stinks with neglect
like you’re there but you’re not there
like you’re crushing on a boy but he doesn’t know you’re there
crushed and yearning for some attention
doesn’t matter
you could do a million crazy things and still not know you’re there
like a precious treasure
it means more to you than the world can offer
many things are missing in our life
but we’ll never know because we’re missing all the signs
we’ll never know because to us it’s invisible

imagine if our parents is gone
you’ll notice becausea they’ve been there all our life
now imagine if you lost a stone, your consciousness, your feeling
in the world there are all sorts of people
to them you’re invisible because you don’t fit their “standards of lifestyles”
You can choose anything you want
you can choose to be known or to be invisible

Artist's Description

this poem is all about things and people that are invisible in our lives. don’t just be a face in the crowd. Sure, we all want attention but at the same time too stand out and be your own individual. let everyone know who you are not just something or someone stuffed in their unimportant pile.
