I am a silhouette.
I lurk in the classrooms, and scuffle along the corridors.
I give off not but a whisper as I pass by,
It's my call, my plea, my cry.
I live amongst the shadows where I go undetected,
When the spotlight is on me, I am still neglected.
Someday from Earth, I will depart,
But my name will be remembered in nobodies heart.
I am just not meant to be seen,
I am just a silhouette.

  • Comment from author about the poem: This is a poem I wrote a few months ago. It described how I felt, because I was never given any attention, people ignored me completely, I felt so unwelcome anywhere. Luckily, I don't feel this way as often anymore.
